This is to inform our students that the Management of the New York University, United States of America understands that Financial aid plays a critical role in many students’ decisions on which college or university they will choose and can consist of scholarships, loans, grants, and work study. The resources below will guide new students to apply for scholarships.
NYU strives to recognize both the academic strength and the financial need of each applicant when reviewing for scholarships. All undergraduate applicants to NYU are automatically considered for merit based aid with the on-time submission of the admissions application; however, it is important to note that only 1-2% of undergraduate scholarships are based solely on merit. A majority of the undergraduate scholarships at NYU are based on a combination of need and merit and require filing all financial aid applications by the university deadlines.
In order to award scholarships as equitably as possible, it is extremely important that you file your financial aid applications on time. Filing late will prevent you from being considered for a majority of scholarships at NYU and since the amount of scholarship a student receives in their first year is typically the amount they will continue to receive each year if they remain otherwise eligible, filing late can affect eligibility in future years.
If you find you are in need of additional financial aid, there are a few options to consider based on your circumstances.
- If your financial situation (or your spouse’s or parents) has drastically changed since you filed the FAFSA, please review the Professional Judgment form located on our Applications and Forms menu. If you meet one of the criteria listed, you might be eligible to have your federal financial aid eligibility reviewed.
- If you are a returning undergraduate student, consider appealing for additional scholarship through the online Appeal for Returning Undergraduate Students via Applications and Forms. This option is typically available in mid-November to be reviewed for the spring term and in mid-May to be considered for the following fall term.
- Financial Aid for Graduate students is usually administered by the student’s respective graduate school. Students seeking additional funding through their school can contact their specific graduate school contacts to determine eligibility criteria. Go to References and Resources and see the School Financial Aid Contacts in the right column.
- Consider seeking outside scholarships. Typically if a student is awarded aid from an organization outside of NYU, the student’s NYU aid is not directly affected. For more details on how to apply please see Scholarships and Grants from Other Organizations.

A PhD scholarship is available in the School of Mathematics and Applied Statistics
(SMAS) at the University of Wollongong in Australia for the 2018/2019 academic year.
The successful applicant will explore the use of statistical deep – learning models for environmental processes. Challenges unique to this application domain motivate the need for new mathematical and computational developments. Specifically, the candidate will mathematically develop deep – learning models that operate under physical constraints, and devise approximate Bayesian inference techniques that can deal with these complex models and large data sets. In particular, inference needs to be made from large data sets originating from satellite remote – sensing instruments, that may have different spatial footprints. Extensive testing and validation of these models against conventional spatial/spatio – temporal models is part of the research project. Analytical and software development, likely using graphical processing units or multi – threading on high – performance computers, will be required, and relevant training will be provided if needed.
Worth of Award
- The UOW scholarship is AUD $26,300 per year for three years full – time. An additional top – up scholarship of AUD $3,700 per year for three years full -time is also available for outstanding candidates.
- Tuition fees for international students (for up to 4.5 years) will be waived.
- The successful applicant will have the opportunity to work with both Australian and international collaborators, and extra funding is available for conference travel.
- Applications are invited from domestic and international students who are able to commence their PhD studies at the University of Wollongong in 2018.
- Applicants should hold, or be close to completing, an Honours 1 undergraduate degree or a Masters degree in Statistics, Machine Learning, or a closely related field.
- The ideal candidate will have an interest in the development of statistical learning/machine learning methodology and computation, excellent mathematical and programming skills, and an interest in using them to model and predict environmental phenomena. Self – motivation, a strong research potential, and good oral and written communication skills are essential criteria.
How to Apply
- If you are interested in applying for this scholarship, please contact Dr Andrew Zammit Mangion via email: [email protected]
