Earn A Full-Tuition Scholarship for Your Dedication to Social Change

You want to use your education to make a difference in the world. We want to help you with the Honors Fellows for Social Change Scholarship.

This unique program is an academic minor designed for National University students currently enrolled in their final two years of any bachelor’s degree program and who have an interest in pursuing social change in their own field of study. Each year, the program awards 15 to 20 competitively selected NU students, providing two years of tuition funding towards degree completion.

This scholarship is intended for students invested in applying their education to create positive social change. This selective scholarship will offer full-tuition for up to two years for eligible students. Scholarship recipients will be automatically enrolled in the University’s Honors Minor, which is taken concurrently with the student’s regular program coursework.

“I have always dreamed of returning to school and becoming a nurse. Now, with the support of my family, hard work, and a supportive community that is invested in me, my dream is about to become a reality.”Liz Mecham, Class of 2020
