Scholarship Opportunities


Because hard work pays off.

There are a number of merit scholarship opportunities for deserving National American University students available through the National American University Foundation and a variety of outside organizations. Your NAU finance counselor can help you identify those that are right for you.

NAU Foundation Scholarship Opportunities

The nonprofit National American University Foundation recognizes and rewards academic achievement through an annual National American University Foundation Academic Excellence Award Scholarship.

To be eligible to apply for an Academic Excellence Award Scholarship, the student must have:

  • Attended half time (six or more undergraduate credit hours; 4.5 or more master’s or DSS credit hours, and three or more trimester credit hours in the EdD) at NAU fall and winter terms, or fall and spring terms in the EdD, of the last calendar year and continue on a half-time basis for the award period.
  • A minimum cumulative GPA of 3.66.

Academic Excellence Award Scholarship recipients are selected based on their:

  • Academic achievement at NAU.
  • Participation in institutional activities or community involvement or service while an NAU student.
  • Financial need.

The National American University Foundation also periodically offers targeted scholarship opportunities for NAU students as resources allow.
