Scholarships rest at the heart of what we’re all about: student success. Financial support makes it possible to welcome dedicated and inspired scholars to North Central College, regardless of their ability to pay.

Scholarships strengthen our distinctive learning community by building a family of students from all walks of life, all backgrounds, and all interests.

The alumni, parents and friends who fund our scholarships recognize the profound difference their gifts make every time they receive a note from a scholarship recipient. These letters detail their academic progress and are filled with genuine gratitude.

Generations of alumni have benefited from scholarships given by those who came before them. Currently, 98 percent of North Central students receive scholarships or grants from the College.

Recently we created a new loan program for academically successful students who—despite other financial aid—simply cannot cover the cost of their education.

At right is a list of endowed scholarships at a level of $100,000 or greater, which are also featured on our wall of honor in Old Main. For the Brilliant Future Campaign, endowed scholarship opportunities begin at $50,000.

With the help of our Brilliant Future Campaign supporters, we can make the North Central experience affordable for all of our students and families.
