Hauser Global Scholars Program, Arthur T. Vanderbilt Scholarships, Dean’s Graduate Awards
Hauser Global Scholars Program
The Hauser Global Scholarship is the most prestigious honor awarded to exceptional LL.M. students who pursue their degree in New York. These merit scholarships provide full tuition and reasonable living expenses, such as rent, the cost of textbooks and other study materials.
The Hauser Global Scholars reflect the breadth, diversity and achievement of NYU School of Law’s graduate student body. Scholars are chosen on the basis of their intellectual and leadership ability and their capacity to participate productively in a global community of scholars and practitioners.
Hauser Global Scholar candidates must be graduates of a law school outside of the United States.
In addition to completing the application for admission to the full-time LL.M. program (including a personal statement), candidates must electronically attach to their online application an essay of 500 to 750 words that briefly describes a current legal dilemma, controversy, or issue facing a country, a region, or the world, and suggests a strategy to address the problem.
Candidates who are not awarded Hauser Global Scholarship will automatically be reviewed for other scholarships for which they are eligible.

All scholars will be recognized in many ways; special workshops, lunches, and other social activities, as well as personalized attention from the faculty are all a part of the award.
Dean’s Graduate Awards
