NWU Holds Scholarship Events that Match Your Students’ Academic Interests

by Benjamin Smith, NWU admissions director

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.

Distinctive Academic Programs Fuel Enrollment Growth

Back in August, Nebraska Wesleyan University enrolled its largest class in our 131-year history. So how is this recruiting season comparing?

Applications and deposits are above last year’s record pace—by quite a bit.

One reason why: Nebraska Wesleyan offers truly outstanding academic programs in the areas your students are seeking now. Here are just a few examples.

December 1 Deadline for NWU’s Full-ride Scholarship

Yes, Nebraska Wesleyan’s Huge-NWU Scholarship is a “huge” award. But that’s not how you say it. At NWU, “Huge” rhymes with “you bee,” as in Harry and Reba Huge, the philanthropists who created Nebraska Wesleyan University’s top academic scholarship.

Let's begin.

Your mission is clear. You work hard to give your students everything they need to succeed beyond the walls of your high school.

NWU students lead a campus tour for visitors.

It pays for your students to visit.

Each and every student who has Nebraska Wesleyan University on their list should invest the time to tour campus—even if getting to Lincoln requires some travel. That’s because NWU rewards every official campus visitor with a renewable $1,000 Campus Visit Grant. That’s $4,000 over a student’s four years here.

When else in life do you get $4,000 just by showing up?
