Helping talented students benefit from Nova Southeastern University’s experience is one of the most meaningful ways to give to NSU. With an annual gift of $1,000 committed for five years, you can establish a Changing Lives Scholarship in your name, or in honor/memory of a loved one, friend, mentor or your family.

Your scholarship can be named for anything that is meaningful to you, such as your name, your family’s name, or someone or something you would like to honor. You can also choose to award your Changing Lives Scholarship to a specific college, regional campus, athletics, or you can choose for it to be distributed wherever the need is greatest.

Your named Changing Lives Scholarship will benefit academically talented students for whom financial assistance will make a difference in being able to attend NSU. Additional donations to your Changing Lives scholarship are welcome, such as from your friends, colleagues, and family. Likewise, we may suggest to donors interested in scholarships like yours that they make additional contributions to your Changing Lives scholarship.

For each year you contribute to your scholarship, you will also be recognized as a member of the President’s Associates Society. To get started, fill out the form below. For a list of Frequently Asked Questions, click here.

A year into his presidency, Abraham S. Fischler, Ed.D. founded the President’s Associates to recognize donors who make annual gifts of $1,000 or more to NSU. Forty-three generous donors made the President’s Associates inaugural roster.

NSU continues this tradition of philanthropic leadership. Donors who give $1,000 - $24,999 for the current fiscal year (NSU's Fiscal Year campaign ends June 30 of each year) are part of NSU’s longest standing giving society, the President’s Associates. 

Your gifts support students whose dream it is to attend our nationally-recognized research university, and faculty members whose dream it is to make the world a better place by inspiring young minds, advancing scientific research and expanding outreach initiatives.

President's Associates members are invited to an exclusive reception each year with fellow members of this special society, alongside President George Hanbury and NSU leadership members.

Commit to giving $1,000 for five years and name your own Changing Lives Scholarship. 





Employees of NSU may elect to give through payroll deduction at a biweekly rate of $38.47.

Crowdfunding campaigns are spearheaded by NSU students, faculty, and alumni for causes such as medical mission outreach trips, and disaster relief. Similar to the "Go Fund Me," these campaigns are often supported by family, friends, mentors, and advocates of the specific initiative. 

NSU students, faculty, and alumni are encouraged to start their own campaign to reach a specific cause or goal. One hundred percent of funds raised go directly to the representing organization.
