The Forward, Together Forward Scholarship is one of Northern’s most prestigious scholarships. Up to five $4,000 scholarships will be awarded annually to continuing undergraduate students who have completed at least 12 semester hours at Northern Illinois University by the time of the application.

Applicants must demonstrate strength of character (as demonstrated through traits such as a strong work ethic, motivation, inspiration, a high regard for others, integrity and/or intellectual curiosity).  Applicants must also exhibit solid academic credentials (as evidenced by at least a 2.5 cumulative NIU GPA), and good standing within their major as well as the university at large.

Recipients must enroll as an undergraduate NIU student during the 2014-2015 academic year in order to receive the scholarship.  Students graduating in Fall 2013, Spring 2014, or August 2014 are not eligible to apply for the scholarship.

The Forward, Together Forward Scholarship is not a renewable scholarship. Recipients of the award will not be eligible in subsequent years.
