Attending an event at Nebraska Wesleyan University needs to be on your students’ calendar. That’s because NWU matches scholarship events with students’ academic interests.

First, NWU offers a wide range of scholarship events geared specifically for students with different career and life goals. We give students great access to professors and alumni professionals who are thriving in their field of interest.

Every student who attends is rewarded with a scholarship worth thousands over their four years at Nebraska Wesleyan. These event scholarships stack on top of our generous acceptance grants and academic scholarships to take Nebraska Wesleyan University’s value even higher.

Encourage your students to RSVP for the scholarship events that fit their interests.
