Students can earn scholarships for academic merit and service, as well as scholarships specific to their areas of study.
In fact, you might be surprised to learn just how many NIU students receive some type of award. During the 2016-17 academic year, more than 4,200 NIU students were offered more than $10 million in scholarships.
NIU was honored as the top women's athletic program in the Mid-American Conference (MAC) for the achievements of their teams in 2017.
They received the university’s first-ever Jacoby Trophy after nine of its 10 women's sports programs finished in the top half of the MAC. The trophy is named for former MAC Commissioner Fred Jacoby and is given to one conference program each year.
