Nicolet College Foundation Scholarships

The Nicolet College Foundation accepts scholarship applications during the Fall and Spring Semesters. Scholarships are awarded to help students with the cost of tuition and books. These scholarships are made possible because of our generous donors. Students enrolling in three to eight credits qualify for a $400 part-time student scholarship and students enrolling full-time in nine or more credits qualify for scholarships which range from $200-$3,000. You can apply for hundreds of scholarships by completing one online application. While each scholarship has its own criteria, the minimum cumulative GPA to be eligible for scholarships is 2.5. The Nicolet College Foundation strongly encourages current and future students to apply.
