Nicholas Scholars Program
The Nicholas Scholars Program, new this year, is our most prestigious merit award.
Launched with funding from five endowments and the Annual Fund, the program enables us to award up to 15 Nicholas Scholarships each year to incoming students from diverse backgrounds and experiences who demonstrate exceptional leadership potential and academic excellence.
These students receive scholarships that cover two-thirds of their tuition – the highest level of financial aid we ever have offered.
Our inaugural cohort of Nicholas Scholars includes nine outstanding students from the Class of 2018, who were selected for the two-year program from a highly competitive field.
