It will only take as little as a couple of minutes today or tonight for a prospective college student to get in a position to receive a $3,000 scholarship.
Students who aren’t sure where they’ll go to college this fall have until midnight tonight to apply for the Journal Services NSU Scholarships, which will award three new Northwestern State University students up to $3,000 in the next school year.
A link to a simple online application form is available at the bottom of this story.
The scholarships are designed to assist Class of 2022 high school students who haven’t settled on a college choice, as well as students currently enrolled at other higher-education institutions who are considering transferring to NSU in Natchitoches.
They are being provided by Journal Services, LLC, based in Natchitoches, which supports 12 locally-owned journals covering north-central and northwest Louisiana.
Applicants are asked to provide their high school GPA (and college GPA if applicable), and also, report their ACT score along with listing honors, extracurricular activities and other relevant information on the form. That information will provide a basis for selecting the three winners.
Scholarship winners must live in Natchitoches Parish during the upcoming school year. They are also required to have in-person, face-to-face instruction for 75 percent of their classes in 2022-23.
Students who have already accepted financial aid awards from Northwestern are not eligible to apply.
