Northern Kentucky University provides countless opportunities to assist our students in paying for college. 

In addition to University-wide scholarships, thanks to the gifts of donors, the College of Informatics is able to offer additional scholarships for its students.

Why apply for Scholarships?

  1. NKU does not require you to search for a scholarship!  For almost all scholarships you only need to submit one application, which is applied to all the NKU scholarships you qualify for!
  2. A scholarship is an award and an investment in your future.
  3. Scholarships are money that you do not have to pay back! (Free money!)
  4. This gives you an opportunity to meet with our valued donors who want to meet you and hear about your experience at NKU, as well as your plans for the future.
  5. A scholarship is an award and can be listed on your resume!
  6. Some scholarships have perks beyond funds! For example, the CINSAM Scholar scholarship provides faculty mentoring, giving you a kick-start for college and career success.
  7. Federal and state support for students decreases, and a scholarship can help keep your total costs down.
  8. The COI has many scholarships which have been created with you and your interests in mind.
  9. Continuing scholarships (after you start college) ask you to supply a letter of recommendation from a faculty member. This gives you a chance to talk with your professors about something other than your grade.

NKU offers scholarship applications for both continuing students and freshman. By completing the freshman or continuing student application, you will be put in the running for many scholarships listed below. These scholarships are indicated with an asterisk (*) symbol next to the name.

Scholarships without this symbol have a separate application process.
