New Scholarships for Underrepresented Graduate Students at New York University

The Steinhardt Graduate School at New York University has announced a new scholarship program aimed at increasing diversity among graduate students. The scholarships will be need-based but with a merit component and will be geared toward students from underrepresented groups.

In addition to members of underrepresented racial and ethnic groups, members of the LGBTQ+ community, people who have served in the military or in the Peace Corps, and students with disabilities will be eligible for the scholarships.

Erin Embry, associate dean for academic operations at the Steinhardt Graduate School, told the students newspaper: “We look to create opportunities for inclusion as we know that diversity enhances and elevates the classroom experience for all involved. Our students come from all walks of life and we seek to develop graduates who can adapt to an ever-evolving world. A diverse classroom leads to better preparation for employment in the global economy.”
