Scholarships & Endowments

One of the most unique and meaningful ways to make a gift to Norwich University is through the establishment of an endowed scholarship. Endowed scholarships provide financial assistance to many of Norwich’s best and brightest students and provide a lasting legacy of support. Scholarships are more important than ever. Federal and state aid has not been adjusted to reflect the ever escalating costs of a higher education.

Scholarships are more than just financial assistance. These scholarships:
  • Provide a method for the University to attract and retain students who will excel at Norwich
  • Offer donors a way to honor loved ones, friends, or mentors who have had an impact on their lives
  • Portray to our students, donors who are acting models of leadership, generosity, and profound loyalty to Norwich
  • Generate donors and an environment that supports the pursuit of academic excellence and commitment to service
  • Allow other University funds to be freed up in order to support institutional or academic needs that will have a profound impact on students, faculty and staff, and the overall Norwich Community
Consider this:
  • Over the past two years, the average "need" (cost of attendance less expected family contribution) of Norwich students, increased by $3,500. This is an indicator of a struggling economy. At the same time, a tightening of credit has made it harder than ever for families to borrow. 
  • A full 98% of Norwich students receive some form of institutional aid, which is about 20% higher than the national average. 
  • Norwich awards about $27 million dollars annually in institutional aid. This included an aggressive need-based financial aid program that enables deserving students to secure a private education at Norwich.
