Juday Award

Thanks to E.T. “Tug” Juday and his family, the Nicolet College Foundation is able to offer year round financial assistance to Nicolet College students. Tug’s commitment to philanthropy and belief in Nicolet College, led to a partnership with the Foundation to establish this student assistance program. Unlike traditional scholarships, Juday Awards include a nomination. To be considered for a Juday Award, ask an instructor to nominate you, or start the process by clicking here to complete the application. When you submit your application, the foundation will contact you to arrange a meeting, as well as the instructor you listed as a nominator.

Nicolet Promise

You may be able to attend college tuition-free with the Nicolet Promise. As part of this program, Nicolet College promises to pay the balance of tuition and fees for eligible students after federal and state grants have been applied. The Nicolet College Foundation covers this cost for up to four fall/spring semesters up to 15 credits per semester. Books and supplies are not eligible for funding. By removing financial barriers with tuition free education, the Nicolet Promise helps bright, hardworking students – like you – achieve their goals.

“I was afraid to go to a four-year university because I benefit highly from the one-on-one time with my instructors. Nicolet has definitely satisfied that need and I’m very glad I chose this college.”
