Celebrate Diversity Scholarship

Diversity is ___________?

Diversity means different things to different people. For some it is all about one’s culture while others feel it’s more about the communities to which we belong, not where we’re from. Our question to you is – how do you define diversity?

To help encourage conversation and support diversity in our university, we’ve created the #CelebrateDiversity Scholarship. This scholarship offers recipients 50 percent off their NCU tuition from enrollment through graduation day.

How it works

This scholarship offers 10 recipients one class for each class they pay for throughout the duration of their NCU degree program. If selected, this allows you to earn your degree for half the normal cost of tuition!

To be considered for this scholarship you must apply to NCU, start your degree program and submit an essay on or before March 26, 2018. All winners will be notified on April 20, 2018.

Essay Guidelines

Submit either a 500-700 word essay, or 2-6 minute audio or video file (maximum two pages, double-spaced) or minimum 2, maximum 6-minute video or audio file (in one of the following formats: .MOV, .MPEG4, .MP4, .MP3, .WAV. .AVI, .MV4, or .WMV not to exceed 25MB).

Your essay should discuss your definition of diversity and the greatest barriers to diversity in your field/industry.
