Financial Aid and Scholarship Information
Scholarships and financial aid are available to students in both the year and semester programs through the Ginsburg-Ingerman Scholarship Program. Scholarship awards are based on economic need. Notification of awards will be made after acceptance to the program.
A student applying for financial aid agrees to inform the OSP office in New York of any change in your financial situation or of any third party financial aid, including scholarships, loans, grants and fellowships. Any unreported aid may result in the partial or total revocation of AABGU scholarship awards.
