Once an international student has been admitted to NIU as a freshman or transfer student, they will automatically be considered for either a merit or housing scholarship. Students will be awarded either one of these scholarships as long as they are still available.
For other scholarship opportunities, beyond the International Admissions scholarships, please visit the Financial Aid and Scholarship Office.
Students must have a minimum cumulative grade point average of 3.5/4.0, as computed by NIU standards. The amount of each award varies from $5,000 to $9,000 per academic year. This is a renewable scholarship.
