How does Wagner consider applicants? What are the admissions criteria?

The mission of the Robert F. Wagner Graduate School of Public Service is to educate leaders in the field of public service. During the admissions review process we look to identify individuals we believe will make contributions to the leadership of domestic and international nonprofit, social policy, health, urban planning and public organizations.

I applied to NYU Wagner, when will I know about any scholarships that I may receive?

You will receive information about any award you receive when we send out decision letters in March. These scholarships are the only awards Wagner coordinates and provides to students. 

NYU encourages you to research graduate student scholarship opportunities in your local community, as that is sometimes a good source of additional funding.
