Outside Scholarships

Numerous scholarships exist outside of St. Norbert. We’ve developed a partial list below that includes only those that organizations have alerted us to. While the majority of these are directed toward undergraduate students, some offer opportunities for graduate students, as well. We encourage you to check with your local church, civic organizations, employers, parent’s employers and other outlets for additional scholarships. As you read through, you’ll get a sense of just how many opportunities there may be if you do a little digging on your own. 

Just ask Nick Surprise. He worked hard by applying for dozens of independent scholarships, and it allowed him to pay for a significant amount of his college costs. Listen to his story below:
