Financial Resources for international students
Hi Anastasia.
First of all congrats!!! NYU is one of the best school in the States. But which campus did you get accepted? If it's Abu Dhabi Campus, they should cover your 100% demonstrated need. Also, is 50% scholarship merit or need-based aid? If you provide more info, I'd be happy to assist.
It's Shanghai Campus and the money comes from scholardhip and grant money provided by NYU Shanghai.
There are a few things to do. You can always try to negotiate financial aid (especially if you have alternative options), check out a number of outside scholarships available (not an easy task at this stage) and find a way to apply for student loans (likely will need a co-signer). Let us know where you are with NYU at the moment and hopefully we can make some concrete suggestions.
