Support Our Student-focused Programs and Initiatives
Your donations and gifts can be designated toward a variety of programs and initiatives at National University.
Here are just a few giving opportunities to consider.
Scholarships and Programs
Many of the programs and initiatives at National University are funded by donors like you. Our scholarships and programs include:
National University Scholars Program
The NU Scholars Program is a scholarship and educational program created to reward exceptional students. This program celebrates our diverse student body and recognizes students who demonstrate potential for high achievement and contribute to society. Scholars receive a full scholarship and are the official student ambassadors of the university.
Precision Education Initiative
National University has launched the Precision Education Initiative to transform higher education through personalized learning approaches. The initiative explores ways of leveraging technology, data, and communications to create a truly customized learning experience for all students in order to better position them to accomplish their academic goals.
An endowment is a permanent fund that supports a purpose of your choice and creates a lasting legacy in your name. Your gift is invested in perpetuity, with distributions from your endowment enabling NU to remain on the cutting edge with its programs and technology and ensuring its financial sustainability. Contributions to NU endowments support the following:
Clum Charles and Gwendolyn Bucher Endowment for Faculty Scholarship Abroad
Jerry C. Lee Endowed Chair for Technology and the Adult Learner
Naming is one of the highest acknowledgments at National University, bestowed on donors whose investments have a transformative impact on the university, and whose commitment to education leaves a legacy for generations to come. It is a special opportunity for you to honor a family member, loved one, or your own legacy by naming a college or school, one of our facilities, classrooms, student lounges, or computer labs.
