Each year, Nova Southeastern University offers countless scholarship opportunities for undergraduate, graduate, and first professional students aimed at recognizing the academic achievement and leadership potential of future students. Thanks to generous donations from alumni, corporations, donors, and friends, NSU offers significant university and college scholarships each academic year, including awards for first-year and continuing students.

Search and apply for as many scholarships as you qualify for and be sure to regularly visit this site for newly added opportunities which are highlighted below. Most institutional scholarships become available in March and have deadlines in May/June. If you are an NSU employee using a tuition waiver, you are ineligible for institutional scholarships. Please note that institutional scholarship funds can only be paid toward NSU tuition charges incurred. Provided renewal requirements are met, institutional scholarships can be renewed annually for a maximum of four academic years or until degree completion, whichever comes first.
