Students must complete the NMC General Application to be considered for any and all NMC Scholarships. You will need to complete a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FASFA) to be considered for need-based NMC scholarships. We highly encourage all students to complete a FAFSA to maximize their eligibility for both NMC scholarships and federal financial aid.

NMC provides a searchable database to help you locate and apply for various NMC scholarships. You will not be considered for any scholarships until you complete the NMC General Application. While the majority of scholarships require no special program of study, others are designated for students pursuing a major in a specific area such as art, aviation, business, criminal justice, culinary, education, health, history, maritime, psychology, welding, and much more.

Upon completion of your NMC General Application, you will be directed to a recommended tab. Here you will find scholarships where an additional action is required by you such as an additional essay, letters of recommendation, or just an easy question to answer. In addition, by completing the NMC General Application, you will be auto-matched to other NMC scholarship opportunities. Your NMC General Application Page will list the scholarship(s) for which you were auto-matched and are for which you are being considered.

Another helpful tool is the External Scholarship Tab. You may apply for additional scholarships outside of NMC via the External Scholarship Tab.

All students must maintain Satisfactory Academic Progress for Financial Aid (SAP) to be eligible for NMC scholarships. Other eligibility criteria vary by scholarship. Potential criteria may include:

  • GPA
  • Credit  hours completed
  • High school affiliation
  • County of residence
  • Organization membership or affiliation
  • Grade level

Please review the criteria carefully before submitting an application.
