Put your student-athletes on a national stage


Nebraska Wesleyan University holds a unique place in American college sports.

The seven contiguous states of Montana, North Dakota, South Dakota, Wyoming, Nebraska, Kansas and Oklahoma are home to some 12 million people. Together, they cover a fifth of the lower 48. And between them, they have just one NCAA III institution: Nebraska Wesleyan University.

So when we say NWU offers an athletic experience unlike anything else in our region, we mean it.

Connect your top students to NWU’s “full-ride scholarship”

In some ways, the Huge-NWU Scholarship is exactly what it looks like. Yes, it’s a “huge” scholarship. But it’s more than that.

The scholarship is named after Harry and Reba Huge. The Huges (pronounced like hue geese) founded the Huge Foundation, which funds the scholarship.

The Huge-NWU Scholarship supports outstanding academic achievement in all fields. Each year, the selection committee awards one or more incoming Nebraska Wesleyan students with a renewable scholarship covering tuition, fees, room and board for up to four years.

Here’s how our scholarship model works.

Every student is automatically considered for a grant and academic scholarship when they’re admitted to Nebraska Wesleyan University.
