NEW YORK UNIVERSITY SCHOLARSHIPS AND GRANTS Founded in 1831, New York University is now one of the largest private universities in the United States. Of the more than 3,000 colleges and universities in America, New York University is one of only 60 member institutions of the distinguished Association of American Universities. A financial aid package at NYU takes into account both financial need and academic merit. Although merit-based scholarships are available, NYU is committed to using the vast majority of its scholarship funds to assist students whose families are unable to pay the full cost of an NYU education. All students are automatically considered, and there is no separate application necessary for NYU scholarships. For more information, please visit: http://bit.ly/oiHpmX


UNIVERSITY OF CALIFORNIA LOS ANGELES FELLOWSHIP AND GRANT AWARDS A leader in education, research, and service, the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) represents the very best of what a university can be. Our extraordinary students come from an incredibly diverse range of backgrounds; our faculty are committed to excellence in scholarship and teaching; and many of our academic programs are ranked among the world’s best. Most fellowship and grant awards are for one academic year (three terms or two semesters). Entering students may, however, receive offers covering all the years of study through degree attainment. Some federally funded awards provide additional summer coverage. Departmental fellowships and grants are awarded in varying amounts and may include fees and nonresident tuition. Awards are competitive and open to all graduate students. For more information, please visit: http://bit.ly/nlWqoF

3 TIPS FOR INTERNATIONAL APPLICANTS TO U.S. M.B.A. PROGRAMS While a report released Sept. 13 shows falling interest in attending graduate business school, more international students are pursuing M.B.A.s in the United States this year than last. For the 2011-2012 school year, about two thirds of U.S. graduate business programs reported receiving fewer full-time M.B.A. applicants to their two year programs, according to the Graduate Management Admission Council's 2011 Application Trends Survey. But about 45 percent of those applicants were international students, up from 39 percent last year. For more information, please visit: http://bit.ly/n1eyh6
