School Counselor Information

This page is intended to serve as a resource for high school counselors and other school officials. Northern Illinois University is excited to highlight several new scholarship opportunities specifically for incoming students graduating from high school.



Other Information for School Counselors

Please encourage your students to apply to NIU early because many scholarships are awarded on a rolling basis as funds remain available. Students must submit completed applications by November 17, 2014 to be considered for the maximum amount of merit scholarships.  Due to limited funding, not all qualified students may receive awards. 

While some scholarships are awarded based on students' application for admission to NIU, students can still search for and apply for other scholarship opportunities. 

NIU would like to thank all of the school counselors for their support and their help in assisting students in identifying scholarship opportunities in your local communities. Together, we can make NIU a reality for many talented and deserving students!

Please contact the Scholarship Office at 815-753-4829 or for more information.
