Our Opportunities

The General Application for 2022-2023 year is open, which includes opportunities for Summer 2022 and Fall 2022/Spring 2023.


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.

For additional opportunities outside of NMC, click the “Opportunities” tab and select “External”.
