NS Student Endowed Fund Awards

Applications for NS Endowed Funds are accepted only ONCE per semester, near the beginning of each fall or spring semester.  The application deadline is determined each semester based on Division III filing dates. There is no open enrollment period, and the date for submissions will be posted when it is determined. If you do not see an application deadline at the top of this page for the semester you are planning to apply, then we are not currently accepting applications for that semester.

To prepare your application, see application guidelines.
