Established with funding from five endowments and the Annual Fund, the Nicholas Scholars Program enables us to award up to 15 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 have ever offered.

The Nicholas Scholars cohort is limited to on-campus MEM & MF students. Students are selected to be Nicholas Scholars; no application is necessary.
