Today we are proud of NUBAA Nation and believe we have reason to be so. NUBAA was very prominently featured at yesterday’s Northwestern Alumni Association Scholarship Luncheon.

Here’s what you should know.

In its first year, the NUBAA Achievement Scholarship (NAS) awarded over $38,000 to 3 scholarship recipients who otherwise would not have attended Northwestern. As a reminder, the NAS is an achievement, non-needs based, award given to African-Americans who otherwise might not qualify for financial aid.

However, NUBAA’s impact didn’t just stop there! The following needs-based financial aid scholarships were also awarded:

  • The NUBAA Promise Scholarship, our needs-based endowment fund, awarded a scholarship of just over $2,000.
  • The Gardner-Exum Scholarship awarded a scholarship of over $7,000.
  • The Alpha Phi Alpha Scholarship awarded a scholarship of over $2,500.
  • The Alpha Kappa Alpha/Cora Regulus Crider Scholarship awarded a scholarship of over $2,500.

Your efforts to directly support efforts targeting African-Americans are making a difference. Your support of NUBAA programming and your direct contributions to www.NUBAA.org (click GIVE NUBAA) have made this possible. Thank you for your support of Northwestern and NUBAA. Go Cats!
