First off, I hope you and your family managed to best the North Pole temperatures we've had the last couple days; this week has definitely been one for the books!

I wanted to reach out and share the good news that I just received; NIU is extending the merit scholarship deadline to next Friday, Feb. 8th. This means that any student that applies to NIU and gets us their official transcripts and test scores by this new deadline will still be considered for our merit based financial awards.


At NIU, it's no secret that we pride ourselves in being a tier one research university with outstanding programs in Engineering, Physical Therapy, Education, Nursing, Visual and Performing Arts, along with having one of the top Business programs in the country.

Do you have a student that could possibly benefit from considering Northern as their next step?

If so, please encourage them to apply using the link I've pasted below. If your student doesn't qualify for free or reduced lunch and would like to apply, please notify me, as I may be able to provide an application fee waiver code between now and the Feb. 8th deadline.

Thanks for all that you do, and please don't hesitate to reach out should you have any questions.
