Scholarships that are offered through the NMU Foundation are privately funded by donors who have created these opportunities for a variety of reasons. Often, these scholarships or endowments are established to honor a family member, classmate, mentor, friend or faculty member. In some instances, the scholarship supports a specific area of study or students from a particular region.
The NMU Donor-funded Scholarships application system for the 2022-23 academic year is now closed.
The NMU Donor-funded Scholarships application system for the next academic year will be open late January through mid February. During this time, students can submit an application through the online system by logging in through MyNMU and clicking on Financial Aid – Donor-funded Scholarships. Newly admitted students can click NMU Foundation Donor-funded Scholarships on the Admitted to NMU tab in MyNMU.
Note: If you wish to be considered for need-based awards, you will need to file a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) with the Financial Aid Office.
Visit the Financial Aid Web site for information on the FAFSA application process.
The Financial Aid Web site also has information on additional sources of aid.
