Scholarships

If it weren’t for scholarships and financial aid, college campuses everywhere would be lonely places. Roughly 97 percent of Nebraska Wesleyan students receive financial aid; most of them wouldn’t be here without it.

Athletic Scholarships at NWU
Nebraska Wesleyan is affiliated with both the NAIA and the NCAA Division III, the only school in the nation with dual affiliation. Since there are no NCAA Division III schools within three hours of Lincoln (and only a handful within six hours), NAIA membership helps us manage our travel budget and missed class time. However, we follow the NCAA Division III philosophy of not awarding athletic scholarships, consistent with the idea that student-athletes are not treated differently from the other members of the student body.
