Financing your education

There are many types of aid available to NIU students. The College of Engineering and Engineering Technology has more than 20 scholarships available exclusively to NIU engineering and technology students, and you’ll find many more through NIU’s scholarship database. Applying for NIU scholarships is easy; fill out one online form to be considered for multiple scholarships.

For students in the NIU Engineering @ RVC program, financial aid is also available for the Rock Valley College portion of your education.

Whatever kind of aid you are seeking, start by completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) as early as possible. You will need that to qualify for many scholarships. State and federal grants awarded based on financial need are also based on your FAFSA.
