Scholarship Information

CNU Funds for Excellence Scholarships

This scholarship has several types of awards.  There is a limit of one award per student, so students may only receive one throughout their time at CNU.  Students may be eligible to apply for more than one type of award, but only one may be issued.  For students who are qualified for more than one scholarship, we will award the higher amount and forfeit the smaller award.  The Funds for Excellence Scholarships includes the following types of awards:

- Honors Program Scholarship (only pre-selected students)
