NYU Furman Center fellowships are awarded to post-doctoral researchers, legal scholars, and law and policy graduate students who have shown exceptional academic ability and achievement, as well as dedication to the highest standards of interdisciplinary empirical and legal research about housing, land use, real estate, and urban affairs.

We are grateful for the generosity of the funders of these fellowships, who include New York University School of Law alumni and leaders in the field of real estate and urban development.  Their support and commitment to the NYU Furman Center’s mission and research and to the professional development of our students and researchers is key to the NYU Furman Center’s ability to deliver rigorous, policy-relevant research.
