Incoming students may be awarded scholarships based on their application for admission to NIU. When applying for scholarships, start by making a complete list of your awards and accomplishments as well as activities, jobs, and volunteer work.

Once you have determined the scholarships for which you are eligible, you will need to request scholarship applications.
