The National University Referral Scholarship – Share the Gift of Education

One of the greatest gifts you can give someone is the opportunity to change their life. The Referral Scholarship is just one of the many ways you can impact a future graduate by sharing the opportunities higher education can bring.

With the Referral Scholarship, we’re making spreading the word about NU beneficial for everyone involved in the process. You’ll get rewarded for referring a student so they can experience four-week classes, 75+ degree programs, and other benefits that will be available to them throughout their educational journey.

When your friend or family member applies for the Referral Scholarship, you earn a $50 NU Store gift card, and grant the referred student $1,000* toward their program of choice.

How it works

The Referral Scholarship offers both the referrer and the referred student a benefit. By sharing the gift of education, the referrer receives a $50 gift card to the NU Store. The referred student gets to start their NU journey with $1,000 toward their program of choice (to be dispersed over the first four courses). It’s a great way to benefit your life and the life of someone you care about.
