Scholarships and Grants
There are many opportunities for scholarship or grant funding, both within the University (depending upon your program) and outside the University. The Chicago Office of Financial Aid encourages students to pursue any scholarship or grant opportunities that may be available to them. Scholarships and grants are outright awards that do not need to be paid back, which in turn decreases the amount of loan funding you may need to borrow in order to pay for your program at Northwestern.
Learn more about these opportunities:
- Institutional Scholarships and Grants
- Federal and State Grants for Undergraduate SPS Students
- Outside Scholarships
Students can also see the Applying Grant & Scholarship Aid to Your Student Account for information on that process.
