Many promising students require financial support to attend Northwestern. In fact, African-American students at Northwestern carry a higher than average financial aid load than the general student population. NUBAA uses our menu of scholarships to address this need, therein fostering diversity at Northwestern.
The NUBAA Promise Endowed Scholarship Fund is our long-term fund aimed at providing financial aid to incoming students. Since its inception in 2013, we have raised approximately $100,000 and have begun awarding scholarships to deserving undergraduates.
Beginning in 2015, NUBAA is looking to award a total of $25,000 a year to students enrolling at Northwestern University to offset other considerations that may lead to their attending other universities. Our goal is simple. We want those students already acknowledged as the best and brightest to choose Northwestern.
Our anchor programming–The Destination Homecoming Gala, The NUBAA Summit & Salute to Excellence, the NUBAA 5K Race for Diversity, and the NUBAA Multi-City Mixers–is designed to support NUBAA Scholarships. Whether you participate in NUBAA events or donate directly, your giving is crucial in the support of our students and our alma mater.
Please write the scholarship name in the memo section of your check and send it payable to
