Institutional Scholarships for Current NUHS Students
National University offers a number of scholarships to students who have completed a minimum number of trimesters and who have at least a 2.0 or higher cumulative grade point average (CGPA). Unless otherwise noted, each scholarship applicant is required to submit a Personal Statement indicating the value of the scholarship in assisting the applicant in furthering his or her educational and/or practice goals. There may be additional requirements that must be met in order to qualify for a scholarship.
Applications are generally available in the Office of Financial Aid during the first month of each trimester. As the scholarship funds come from endowment earnings, the earnings are distributed when there is sufficient income to award. Scholarship amounts range from $500 to $2,000. Enrolled students will be informed when to apply for these institutional scholarships.
