Pathways: YU Undergrads & Alumni

Pathways Scholarship

Current YU Undergraduates: Any YU undergraduate who applies to a Katz School STEM master’s program while completing their bachelor’s degree (i.e., in their junior or senior year), is eligible for the Pathways Scholarship, which reduces tuition for the graduate degree to the following: 

  • All STEM programs (except Math and Physics): Tuition for the master’s degree is 50% of the published full tuition rate of the entirety of the program, regardless of the number of graduate credits taken during their undergraduate program. For instance, for the M.S. in Biotechnology Management and Entrepreneurship, tuition after the Pathways scholarship will be 50% of the published tuition for the entire 36-credit program. 

  • Math and Physics: Tuition for the master’s degree is $10K, regardless of the number of graduate credits taken during their undergraduate program. 

  • Notes: With permission of their undergraduate advisor and the graduate program director, YU undergraduates may take up to 12 graduate credits during undergrad, depending on the program (learn more about Pathways Dual Degrees). No other Katz School scholarships, such as the STEM Fellows scholarship, can be combined with the Pathways Scholarship. 

Recent YU Undergraduate Alumni: YU undergraduate alumni who apply for any Katz School STEM graduate program within one year of completing a YU undergraduate degree are eligible for the Pathways Scholarship outlined above. YU alumni who apply for a Katz School STEM program after one year of completing their undergrad degree will be considered as any other applicant. 

Pathways Dual Degrees

The Katz School offers Pathways (Dual Degree) for graduate programs in Artificial Intelligence, Biotechnology, Cybersecurity, Data Analytics, Digital Marketing & Media, Math and Physics. YU undergraduates from Yeshiva College, Stern College for Women and the Sy Syms School of Business may take up to 12 graduate credits (depending on graduate program) that will count toward both their bachelor's and master's degrees. After completing their bachelor's, students can finish their graduate degree in just one more year.Learn more.
