Faculty and Staff Services


The NIU Scholarship Office is available to assist in the administration of departmental and office scholarships. Along with colleagues in Development, the NIU Foundation, Financial Aid and Accounting, we provide individualized training and group workshops on the following topics and more:

  • NIU scholarship processes and procedures
  • Financial Summary Reports (FSRs)
  • Scholarship forms and other paperwork
  • Financial Aid implications
  • AcademicWorks access and training

The NIU Scholarship Office maintains the university scholarships website and the AcademicWorks scholarship application system. Massive updating is done over the summer, but individual additions/deletions/changes can be made to the scholarship system at anytime.

We invite the NIU community to contact the Scholarship Office with any scholarship questions, concerns or needs at anytime.


Have you heard about our new scholarship search tool called AcademicsWorks? Read our FAQ to learn more about AcademicWorks and the new scholarship review process.
