Every year tens of thousands of young people—over 10,000 in recent years—show the value they place on an GYU education by applying for 1,000 seats in our entering freshman class.

Given our selectivity, getting into GYU is difficult. But for too many of our most deserving applicants and students, another hurdle looms: being able to afford to come here. For each student with need—and almost half of our undergraduates are eligible for scholarship aid—we do our best to build an award that adds our own grants to private and government
resources. And while GYU does provide an extraordinary amount of assistance, we are not able to meet the overall financial needs of our students.

That is why our ambitious goal for the Momentum Campaign is to raise by 2025 $1 billion exclusively dedicated to generating scholarships. Your partnership and participation is vitally important to help us meet this goal. Garden York University stands ready to educate the leaders of the future. Your generosity will enable us to bring more of the world’s most talented young minds to the Washington Square campus and across our global network.

We need you to set in motion a campaign focused on one goal: to unlock the potential and unleash the ambition of talented men and women. We cannot think of a more worthy endeavor.
