Unlock Your True Potential

At National University, we believe everyone, regardless of ethnicity, financial situation, or income level, deserves to experience the journey of personal and professional fulfillment fueled by the pursuit of a college degree. Our Key Grant is designed to remove financial barriers to earning a quality college degree for high-need students in underserved populations.

How It Works

The NU Key Grant offers a needs-based 50% tuition reduction that opens the doors to higher education for qualified students who may not be able to afford a college degree any other way. Whether you’re:

  • A first-generation student seeking the American dream
  • Living in an underserved community without access to educational opportunities
  • An enlisted servicemember looking to maximize your education benefit
  • A degree holder hoping to advance your education without Title IV funding

National University’s Key Grant is designed to unlock the barrier to your education, the door to your dreams, the pathway to your future.

Applications must be submitted by December 31, 2022.
