Vision Scholarship

Make 2020 your decade with a full-tuition scholarship from NCU

Dreams are powerful, but it takes more than thoughts to transform a dream into reality. We want to encourage you to make 2020 the decade you do something about your dreams, starting with going back to school.

To help you take the first step this New Year, we’re offering six (6) full-tuition scholarships. This is a potentially lifechanging opportunity that would help to remove most of the financial barriers to higher education.

Take charge of your dreams this decade!
