What It Costs: Tuition, Scholarships, and Financial Aid

Our Commitment to Affordability

NYU Steinhardt and its partner schools offer generous support to make the Teacher Residency affordable to students from diverse backgrounds. All teaching residents are eligible for substantial scholarships and financial aid packages:

  • Scholarships for eligible students range from $10,000 to more than $25,000 to help cover the cost of your tuition and do not have to be paid back.
  • Stipends range from $12,500 to $20,000 and assist with your educational and living expenses.
  • Free residential housing is available from partner schools in certain locations.
  • Service completion awards allow eligible students to repay student loans or educational costs after finishing the program.
  • Student loans can help cover your cost of attendance but must be paid back. The typical financial aid package for graduate students includes a “suggested student loan” amount. If you teach in low-income schools after you complete your Teacher Residency, you may be eligible for federal teacher loan forgiveness programs.

We seek a diverse group of applicants to become teaching residents and encourage you to apply and complete your financial aid application today.

Once you have been admitted, we will send you detailed information on the scholarship and financial aid package you will receive. You are under no obligation to enroll in the program until you have seen and accepted your financial aid package.
