NYU Shanghai Graduate Dissertation Fellowship

Fellows may come from any discipline, but are especially encouraged to engage in projects related to the strengths of the NYU Shanghai faculty. Each award includes a stipend, a waiver of maintenance of matriculation fees (if applicable), comprehensive NYU health insurance, and round-trip transportation. Work spaces are also made available at NYU Shanghai.
