CUSP invites you to join the leading individuals and organizations whose support will catalyze an exciting vision to make cities around the world more productive, livable, equitable and resilient.

Funding Priorities

Annual Giving

The CUSP Annual Fund enables alumni, parents, and friends to support CUSP initiatives with the highest need.  Giving to NYU every year ensures that the CUSP Annual Fund's impact is continuous and consistent, and your gift will have a direct impact on our work to improve cities.

Scholarships & Financial Aid

The ability to attract and support the best and the brightest students, regardless of their financial circumstances, is of the utmost importance to NYU. At CUSP, there are a number of ways to support student scholarships.  Whether you choose to support our annual scholarship fund or make a gift to endow a named scholarship, there are many ways to help CUSP students make their dreams a reality.

Faculty, Staff, and Research

To maintain our status as a world-class institution, we need to be able to continue to attract high-caliber faculty and provide them with the resources they need to perform critical research. And our commitment has not gone unrewarded: our faculty have made important advances in topics such as remote sensing, predictive modeling, entrepreneurship, and computer visualization.

Equipment and Technology

As technology changes rapidly, so do the needs of our campus. From providing our faculty and students with the most up to date equipment to connecting them with collaborators through videoconferencing and networked resources, it is critical that NYU stay ahead of the technology curve.
