There is a limited amount of money available for need scholarships from NIU. The application form is available below or by calling the office at (815) 753-1450. Forms and application fees must be received by May 1. There is a $20 non-refundable application fee for NIU need scholarships. The fee will be applied towards the balance owed. Forms that do not include the application fee or that are missing requested information will not be processed. Applicants do not need to pay the deposit at this time. Award letters are sent in mid-May.
In previous years, many campers have received scholarship aid from their schools, local booster clubs, PTAs, community theatres, and local service organizations. We recommend that you contact such groups in your area in early spring.
