  • Who is eligible to attend?

    NGU extends invitations to the most gifted and accomplished first-year applicants. The academic profile of students who attend can be found by viewing the scholarship application criteria. Students must submit a completed application by the deadline each year to qualify for an invitation.

  • What should I wear?

    You will be interviewing with current faculty and professionals, so business attire is recommended for the weekend.

  • How should I prepare?

    A good night’s sleep and a healthy breakfast are a great place to start. In addition, we encourage you to be yourself. Be prepared to discuss your passions, achievements, and future goals.

  • Can I bring guests?

    Each student may bring two guests, such as a parent or guardian, on Friday evening. Friday’s program includes a special dinner for competitors and their families, along with a session for guests following dinner.

    Saturday is designed for our student competitors. We encourage families to check out award-winning Greenville, SC, while students participate in the on-campus scholarship elements.

  • Do I have to be present to participate?

    Students must be present on campus for the weekend in order to participate.

  • When will I be notified of my scholarship results?

    You can expect to receive notification from the weekend event within two weeks.

  • Does this scholarship stack on top of the one I’ve already received from NGU?

    No, this scholarship will replace any merit scholarship offer you have already received from NGU.

  • Where can I stay?

    If you are joining us from out of town, check out these hotels. Student competitors may also choose to stay on campus at NGU with a student host.

NGU Testimonial
“NGU’s scholarship competition was a significant part of my college journey. I was very nervous to present my work and go through the panel interviews, but I was so proud of how far I’d come. When I attended the event, I immediately felt at home and knew that North Greenville was where I was supposed to be. I am thankful for the opportunity NGU gave me to start my college journey that laid the foundation for where I am today.”Grayson Higgins
