Student Services


The NIU Scholarship Office provides resources designed to help students achieve scholarship success. Our newly renovated facilities provide computer workstations with Internet access. Visitors can retrieve information on NIU's scholarships through our custom AcademicWorks scholarship application system.  Students can utilize the Internet to search limitless external scholarship websites as well.

In addition to the computer stations and a reference library to aid students in looking for private scholarships, there is a work space of tables and chairs for students to utilize. A skilled and dedicated staff is on hand to answer questions and provide:

  • Applications and other scholarship materials
  • Tips on where and how to apply for scholarships
  • Clarification on scholarship procedures and requirements
  • Financial advocacy for students with encumbrances
  • Assistance with budgeting for educational expenses
  • Investigation of missing or delayed scholarships
  • Referrals to NIU offices and resources
  • Emergency Funding
