MA Media Producing Financial Aid Information

Financial Aid

Merit or need-based scholarships are not available for the Master of Arts Media Producing program. Tisch School of the Arts does not offer graduate assistantships to master’s students.

Domestic Students

Students who are U.S. citizens or eligible non-citizens who wish to be considered for financial aid must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Students are encouraged to look for outside sources of aid as well. Most students will also take out loans to cover tuition.

All U.S. applicants are strongly urged to complete the FAFSA as soon as possible to assess their eligibility for federal financial support.

International Students

International students are urged to look for outside sources of funding well in advance of the acceptance notice. Please note that non-U.S. citizens do not qualify for US Federal grants and loans, and thereby cannot file the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) from the U.S. government. International students can secure private educational loans from U.S. institutions if they have a cosigner who is a U.S. citizen. If financial aid is an important aspect of your application, don’t overlook funding opportunities from your home country, and from foundations that are internationally based, along with all possible personal, family and local resources.

NYU does not recommend any specific outside funding agencies but provides resources for outside scholarships and grants. Websites like or are used by students look for outside scholarships.
