Global Awards, Undergraduate Research and External Opportunities

Global awards are competitive, merit-based external scholarships and fellowships that allow outstanding students and leaders to pursue advanced academic or professional goals. 

If you are looking for financial support of your studies at NYU Shanghai, please visit Chinese Admissions (Chinese citizens) or International Financial Aid (all other nationalities).

Our Mission

Established in September 2015, the Office of Global Awards at NYU Shanghai helps high-achieving, self-directed undergraduates navigate applications for major international fellowships, scholarships, and awards. Alongside faculty mentors, career advisors, and peers, students are challenged to articulate their own narrative, expertise and goals. Fundamentally, the Office of Global Awards views the pursuit of advanced research, study, and teaching as an exceptional platform for students’ personal and professional engagement with the world.

Our Values

We are guided by reciprocal values of integrity, merit, and authenticity. We aim for fairness and transparency in our endorsement of candidates, and we demand intellectual honesty, generosity, and curiosity from our students in return. Embracing the diversity of NYU Shanghai, we seek to promote funding opportunities open to a wide range of nationalities and disciplines.

What We Do

We host information sessions and technical workshops, hold one-on-one advising sessions, and coordinate NYU Shanghai’s internal nominations for awards that require university endorsement.
