Out-of-State First-Year Scholarships
$15,000 Flagship Match
NWU’s Flagship Match is how we invest in you as an out-of-state student. You automatically receive this renewable $15,000 grant just by crossing a state border to attend NWU. This new program helps you choose an outstanding private education at a cost roughly equal to what you’d pay at the flagship public school in your state.
$1,000 Campus Visit Grant
You automatically receive this renewable $1,000 grant when you tour campus.
You automatically qualify for a four-year renewable academic scholarship based on your ACT score and high school GPA. These awards combine with our Flagship Match and Campus Visit grants to increase the impact of your financial aid at Nebraska Wesleyan (effective for first-time attending students starting Fall 2018).
