SCHOLARSHIPS

Scholarships

Northwest State Community College offers an array of scholarship opportunities for students. Scholarships are forms of financial aid that do not need to be repaid. If you are a new student, the first step to ensuring that you can be considered for a scholarship is to apply for admission. The link below will direct you to the application for admission if you have not yet applied.

The office of Financial Aid is here to help you in your scholarship search. While many outside businesses and community organizations sponsor scholarships, Northwest State Community College also has a wide variety of opportunities for students. This in mind, we encourage all students to apply for as many scholarships as eligible.

We invite you to explore the scholarships that are offered through the Northwest State Community College and the NSCC Foundation. Scholarship awards can range from $250 to full tuition, and many scholarships are awarded to more than one student each year. Whether sponsored by the institution or made possible by our generous donors, scholarships pave the road to success for many students at NSCC while helping them achieve their dreams and build their futures.
