LL.M. Scholarship Programs
NYU offers highly competitive scholarships to full-time LL.M. students in both New York City and Singapore. Admission and scholarship decisions are made based on merit without regard to financial need. Due to generous funding for NYU@NUS, per admitted student, there is more financial support available for study in Singapore than for study in New York City. All applicants should refer the information about accepting a scholarship offer and enrolling in NYU’s LL.M. programs.
With the exception of the Hauser Global Scholarship for study in New York and the Singapura Scholarship for study in Singapore, all admitted students are automatically considered for the scholarships for which they are eligible on the basis of their admissions application; no additional application materials are required. Prospective students who wish to apply for the Hauser Global or Singapura Scholarship Program should refer to the respective scholarship description to locate instructions for submitting the additional required essay.
Financing Graduate Legal Education
A private legal education is a significant investment of your time and money and should be approached with a full understanding of both the benefits and costs. While the Law School has several selective, merit-based scholarship programs, in most cases financing a graduate education rests primarily with the student. Therefore, we strongly encourage applicants to our degree programs to investigate all available financing options.
We have assembled information about various supplemental financial aid opportunities on our website. The information is not exhaustive and your own research may be very beneficial. Please confirm all application deadlines for external aid directly with the granting organization. International students should also explore financing options in their home countries.
Students come to the Law School from varied backgrounds but the student expense budget reflects a simple lifestyle; that of a graduate student. With that in mind, the Office of Student Financial Services develops student expense budgets that estimate a student’s annual projected educational expenses, including tuition, fees, living expenses, books and health insurance. Information on the student expense budget for study in New York and for study in Singapore is located online.
