National University offers several types of scholarships to students of all programs. Some scholarships reward academic achievement, some programs recognize Illinois residents or children of alumni, and other programs assist minority and international students. If you have questions about any of the scholarships listed or your eligibility for a particular scholarship program, contact the Office of Financial Aid.
Alumni Legacy Benefit
Spouses or children of NUHS graduates, who have been active members of National University of Health Sciences Alumni Association for a minimum period of the five consecutive years immediately preceding the date of matriculation of spouse/child, shall receive a 50% discount on remaining tuition due, after other NUHS gift aid has been credited to the student's account, for the first term of study in any program within the College of Professional Studies or the College of Allied Health Sciences. Contact the Office of Admissions for further information and for verification of eligibility.
Miss Illinois Scholarship
NUHS will provide a full tuition scholarship to any of its academic programs for the winner of the official Miss Illinois pageant.
Students attending NUHS who are from the same family household and concurrently enrolled are each entitled to a discount. Each student will receive a discount of his/her tuition based on 15% of the lower tuition charge as long as all family members are in good academic standing and are attending classes as full-time students in a degree seeking program. An application must be completed by each family member when both meet the stated criteria in the same trimester; it is not retroactive to prior trimesters. Applications are available from the Office of Financial Aid. A complete description of the Tuition Discount for Multiple Family Members policy can be found on our Policies page.

A $2,000 scholarship will be awarded to PTK students in two separate disbursements of $1,000, one in each of the student's first two trimesters. Recipients must be a member of PTK, have earned a 3.5 grade point average, have completed a minimum of 33 credit hours of prior college coursework, and be enrolled in 12 or more credits in each of the first two trimesters.
