Each year, National University awards tuition scholarships and grants to educationally and economically disadvantaged students. All scholarships and grants are based upon the eligibility rules that focus on financial need.

National University’s awards are considered “last money” tuition scholarships. These awards are designed to supplement, but not replace, federal and state financial aid, employer tuition assistance, and student income. Awards are credited directly to the financial accounts of recipients. The number of scholarships disbursed depends upon the availability of allocated funds. As a nonprofit institution, National University tries to provide as many scholarship and grant opportunities as possible.
