Our Opportunities

The General Application for 2021-2022 year is open, which includes opportunities for Spring/Summer 2021 and Fall 2021/Spring 2022.


NMC awards over $1.4 million a year in a wide variety of scholarships (based on financial need, academic performance, and interests/experiences). All students have a chance to be awarded a scholarship. To be considered, you will need to submit a General Application. In addition, complete a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) to be considered for need-based scholarships.

Please sign in and complete a General Application. Submit it, then check back the next day and periodically to see what scholarships you are matched to. There may be additional steps needed for some scholarships.
