Scholarship Policies & Approach

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 needs.

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.

National University is an independent, accredited, post-secondary educational institution that does not discriminate in any of its policies, procedures, or practices on the basis of race, color, national or ethnic origin, age, sex, handicap, veteran status, or medical condition.

Admission advisors and financial aid advisors will assist you in applying for a University-funded award. However, it is your responsibility to read and comply with the policies and procedures contained in the University catalog prior to applying for a scholarship.

Please review the accompanying scholarship information. If you meet the eligibility criteria for an award and are in need of financial assistance, you are encouraged to apply.

If you have any questions, please call (858) 642-8185, or email [email protected].
