Investing in our students
Scholarship dollars provided by NwHSU are helping 37 incoming students with tuition, through merit, legacy, and international student scholarships. Six students are receiving a $2,500 first-term Legacy scholarship, available to students whose immediate family member graduated from Northwestern. The $2,500 merit scholarship was awarded to 30 first-term students with a cumulative GPA of 3.5 and above.
Seven international students joined us this fall; from China, Taiwan, and five from Canada. Four are receiving a $1,000 first-term scholarship. Finally, two incoming students each from the acupuncture, chiropractic and massage therapy programs are receiving a Diversity scholarship in the amount of 50 percent of tuition.
