UNW Scholarships

Scholarships are available for each type of student.

Private Scholarships

While private scholarship searching takes time, it has the potential to earn you thousands in just a few hours. Jump-start your private scholarship with these helps.

Websites also offer information about private scholarship options. Northwestern is not connected to, nor does it endorse, the companies or the awards listed on the sites linked below. Legitimate companies never charge an application fee for the award they are offering and we do not recommend paying a company for the scholarship for which you are applying.

  • FastWEB is the largest and most complete scholarship search online.
  • Smart Student Guide to Financial Aid offers information on financial aid for college and tips on how to help ease the burden of college expenses.
  • Twin Cities Adult Education Alliance (TCAEA) is an association of Twin Cities metro area public and private colleges and universities that address the educational needs of working adults.
