At the core of Yeshiva University’s mission is our commitment to rigorous Torah study. We offer a variety of undergraduate opportunities for Talmud Torah, for both our men’s studies. Our graduates receive an integrated education that is the equivalent of two complete undergraduate degrees and a thorough development of Torah knowledge, worldview and character. They learn and receive guidance from our world-renowned faculty or rabbis and teachers.

Finance Your Education

Providing financial aid and scholarships is core to our mission of providing an excellent education.

Learn more about financial aid

Finance Your Education

As the leading university of the Orthodox Jewish world, we consider it our responsibility to make the YU education affordable for our students and their families. We do this by offering a combination of academic and need-based scholarships. Overall, approximately three-quarters of YU students receive financial assistance of some kind.

More than any other university, we understand the unique challenges and financial sacrifices of raising a Jewish family. To that end, our financial aid staff works closely with each student to design a financial aid package based on his or her family's individual circumstances and obligations.

We have provided many details about scholarships on this site, but please do not hesitate to contact the Office of Student Finance if you have additional questions. We are your partners in this process and are here to assist you in any way we can.

Need Based Scholarships

Each year, Yeshiva University devotes substantial resources to providing need-based scholarships to our community.

Need-based scholarship info

Need Based Scholarships

Need-based scholarships take into account all aspects of a family's financial circumstances—including income, savings, tuition for siblings enrolled in day schools or college, care of elderly family members and even recent business difficulties. As a result, even families with high levels of income are often eligible for need-based assistance.

U.S. citizens and eligible non-citizens must begin the process by filling out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), a federal form that helps our financial aid staff determine how much financial assistance a family needs. There are two ways to fill out a FAFSA:

  • The most efficient method is to fill out the FAFSA online at www.fafsa.ed.gov
  • You can also complete a paper FAFSA, which can be obtained from most high schools and colleges or by calling 800.4.FED.AID. Note that using the paper version will delay the processing and response.
  • Yeshiva University's FAFSA code is 002903

YU uses the FAFSA as well as other relevant information that you provide to determine the amount and makeup of financial aid package. A typical package  may be composed of grants (money that does not need to be repaid), loans and Work Study (campus job). 

International students who do not hold U.S. citizenship should fill out the International Undergraduate Student Financial Aid Application, which can be found on the Office of Student Finance page.  All U.S. citizens and eligible non-citizens must fill out the FAFSA in order to apply for need-based scholarships, even if they hold dual citizenship with another country.

Please visit the Office of Student Finance website for more information and full instructions on how to apply for student aid.
