Education changes lives. And, a Yeshiva University experience is unique, offering both the highest quality Jewish and secular education of any university in the world. Fusing Jewish tradition with Western thought, YU provides its students with the values, skills and resources to make a real difference.

That’s why we’re so committed to making the YU advantage available to every deserving student. We don’t want a single one to miss the life-changing opportunity our University affords as a result of financial need. For us, it’s both a privilege and a responsibility.

Whether you support a particular school, contribute to undergraduate scholarships, fund a capital campaign or allow us to direct your generosity to the area of greatest need, we appreciate each and every gift.

Emergency Scholarship Campaign

For many of our students, the devastated economy brought on by COVID-19 has made college tuition seem out of reach. We are determined that no student will have to drop out for financial reasons, and we are doing everything in our power to achieve that goal.

Times have changed. Our mission hasn't. We're committed to helping all students achieve the YU degree they set out to earn. You can help us help them by supporting YU's Emergency Scholarship Campaign.

First-Generation Scholarships

A college degree improves career opportunities and the resulting prospect for economic prosperity and social mobility. As a result, the children of those with degrees are more likely to attend college themselves.

Designed to increase access, YU's First-Generation Scholarships create opportunities for exceptional college students who are the first members of their immediate families to attend college.

Donor Stories

Emil Fish: Creating a Center for Remembering and Understanding

“With the increase in anti-Semitism around the world, I realized the imperative of making sure there is never again another Holocaust,” says Emil Fish. “So I asked: How can we be active in its prevention?”

The question led Fish to establish the Emil A. and Jenny Fish Center for Holocaust and Genocide Studies, a center to train educators in the field of Holocaust and genocide studies and to provide programming to combat contemporary prejudices and hateful ideologies.
