Nicolet College Foundation Scholarships

There is money available to help you pay for college – you just have to apply. Hundreds of scholarships are made possible because of the generosity of the many friends and supporters of the Nicolet College Foundation. Foundation scholarships help lower the cost of a college education, allowing students to focus more on education.

  • Scholarship applications are accepted in February for the following academic year and in September for the following spring term.
  • Current and future students are encouraged to apply.
  • Scholarships may be applied to tuition and books.
  • Scholarships generally range from $250-$3,000
  • The minimum cumulative GPA or other qualifying test score equivalent is 2.5.
  • All you have to do is complete one general application to apply for most foundation scholarships. After you submit your general application, you will see a list of additional scholarships, for which you may also apply by answering additional questions.

My time at Nicolet has helped me realize how I can reach my goals and how I can work harder to reach new goals. My scholarship helped me take the steps in the right direction.
