Full Flight Scholarship

Full Flight Scholarship - Full Tuition Paid

Get ready to soar with free tuition all four years

We know that cost is one of the biggest barriers to higher education. We strive to make a quality education affordable at Niagara University, but never more so than this: Free tuition for all four undergraduate years, courtesy of the new Full Flight Scholarship.

The new scholarship reinforces the university’s Vincentian mission and resulting commitment to access and affordability. As a Vincentian institution, we have pledged that at least 25% of our incoming undergraduate students will be eligible for federal Pell Grants.


  • 88 GPA, or higher
  • U.S. resident
  • Financial hardship
  • Demonstrated ability to overcome difficulties (“grit”), and active involvement in volunteer/service work that benefits the local community or society at large
  • Must maintain a 2.5 GPA or higher while pursuing your undergraduate degree at NU


Qualifying students must submit their scholarship application by Jan. 15, 2023. A select committee will review the applications and announce their decisions by mid-February, 2023.


The scholarship will cover the entire balance of a qualifying student’s tuition for all four years of college, so there will be a $0 expected family contribution for enrolling at Niagara University (other than fees and books).

Students will be responsible for room and board, should they decide to live on campus.

Full Flight is designed for driven students who are eligible for full Pell status ($0 Expected Family Contribution), which generally is reserved for students who come from a family of four or more with an annual household income of $60,000 or less. The best way to determine your eligibility is to file your Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) with Niagara University as soon as possible.

Please go to studentaid.gov to complete your FAFSA. Our school code is 002788.

Yes, any United States citizen can apply for the Full Flight Scholarship as long as they qualify.

There are a limited number of Full Flight Scholarships available.

Continuing eligibility requires annual FAFSA completion.
