President's Scholars

NPC President's 

NPC would like to reward YOU for your academic achievement

The President’s Scholars Program is Northland Pioneer College's most prestigious merit award that recognizes your high level of academic performance in high school. Because of your achievement, NPC offers you an opportunity to become a President's Scholar. This honorary program includes specialized attention from faculty, as well as a scholarship that covers your tuition, fees and books at NPC for four (4) semesters.

Recognition and Benefits

NPC President's Scholarship
  1. The President's Scholarship is a $2,200 per semester award [2017-18 Academic Year] that covers tuition and fees, plus book costs. (If book allowance is insufficient, contact the NPC Financial Aid Office for assistance.) If grade standards are maintained (cumulative 3.25 or better) and full participation in the Scholars Program continues, you will receive the scholarship for four semesters.
  2. Meals are provided for participation in Scholars enrichment activities.
  3. Your inclusion in the President's Scholars program is noted on your transcript, in various forums and recognized at graduation.
