International Fees, Scholarships & Grants

International Tuition & Fees

International students will be eligible for the same  tuition and fees, and scholarship opportunities as domestic students, based on WES evaluations.  See below for international scholarship  opportunities and  for more detailed information on awards.

First Year Students

Students who have not taken any post-secondary courses

For native English speakers, merit-based scholarships, achievement awards and grants for incoming first-year students are based on your cumulative high school average. Please submit SAT or ACT scores if you have taken them as they may increase your eligibility. Please contact us if you have questions pertaining to standardized test requirements.  

All merit-based scholarships, achievement awards and grants are for each of your four years at NU, providing you maintain full-time status and the required quality point average. All you need to do is make application and submit results from either the SAT or ACT. Scholarships range from  $8,000 to $15,000  (the levels are listed below). Students in the Ontario Teacher Education — Bachelor's Degree Program are not eligible for these scholarships.

  • Niagara Trustees Scholarship: $15,000
  • NU Presidential Scholarship: $13,500
  • NU Achievement Award: $12,000
  • NU Grant: $8,000

Enhanced Trustees Recipients will be chosen at the Niagara University Invitational Scholarship Competition program and may receive up to an additional $5,000.
