• The Impact of Giving
  • With your gift to The New School, you have the opportunity to make an impact in a variety of ways, including but not limited to:

    • Establishing a scholarship or fellowship fund
    • Funding professorships and faculty research
    • Supporting interdisciplinary centers and institutes

    Groundbreaking Education

    The New School’s diverse, engaged community is among its greatest strengths. Our students are true changemakers, dedicated to using their intellect, skills, and interdisciplinary understanding of the world to make a difference both locally and globally. These extraordinary individuals are integral to our institutional health, and the university is deeply committed to welcoming all qualified candidates who seek a unique, rigorous academic experience, regardless of their economic circumstances.

    Scholarships and fellowships play a critical role in allowing us to fulfill this commitment, as many students in our community would not be able to attend without substantial financial aid packages. These awards also give students peace of mind, allowing them to focus on and progress in their studies and reducing the debt burden they face upon graduation.

    When you establish a scholarship or fellowship at The New School, you not only help us attract talent and uphold our commitment to access and inclusion but also ensure that our students can continue to pursue meaningful work and contribute to the betterment of our world today.

    World-Changing Faculty

    The New School’s faculty consists of prominent, globally respected artists, scholars, and researchers who affect countless lives through their teaching, mentorship, and professional pursuits.

    Through their efforts both in and outside of the classroom, New School faculty members catalyze innovation on campus and around the world. In the coming years, we will expand our faculty to include more of today’s most influential thought leaders. Increasing the number of professorships and available research funds at The New School is essential to this effort. Professorships recognize the contributions of outstanding educators and sustain their teaching and research, enabling them to convey knowledge to the next generation and develop creative solutions to improve the world.

    When you endow a professorship at The New School, you ensure that our faculty members can continue to prepare our students to be trailblazing thinkers, artists, and leaders and change the world with their own innovative work. You help our network strive for a New kind of future — one shaped by leading-edge scholarship and marked by social progress.

    Bold Research and Collaboration

    Scholarly exploration and intellectual discourse have never been more vital to our society; asking complex questions is essential to unlocking global change. The New School’s centers and institutes carry forward our tradition of academic inquiry and transcend the confines of single disciplines to develop scalable solutions to many of the world’s most urgent problems.

    Members of our community collaborate to meet the challenges of the present and future, addressing topics including global migration, democracy, capitalism, and more. Our centers and institutes build on the work of our faculty, sponsor a variety of lectures and events, and enrich our students’ educational experience by promoting bold creativity and groundbreaking scholarship.

    These centers and institutes provide a space for research, policy debate, and discussion among activists, artists, and innovators in all fields. By supporting these unique forums for world-changing research, you ensure a future filled with opportunities to educate and unite our network — and change the world for the better.
