INSTRUCTIONS FOR COMPLETING THE SCHOLARSHIP APPLICATION FORM


Scholarships awarded by Norfolk State University School of Business are restricted to undergraduate
students who are currently enrolled in the Business School and have pre-registered or newly admitted
students who wish to join NSU Business School as full-time students. Recipients must have the required
cumulative grade point average, be in good standing, and must maintain full-time status with a minimum
course load of 12 credit hours per semester as of the final drop date in the semester. (Scholarship award
will be cancelled, if a student does not join the NSU Business School or does not register for the full-time
load of 12 credit hours). Scholarships are awarded on the basis of (competitive) merit and demonstrated
financial need. Applicants must file the current FAFSA with the U.S. Department of Education. In order
to evaluate scholarship applications, the School of Business Scholarship Committee will retrieve
academic information from the registrar and financial need information from student financial services.
This information is confidential and will not be shared with anyone except the School of Business
Scholarship Committee.


Have you filed a FAFSA with the U.S. Department of Education? If not, do so immediately. Also,

participate in activities or receive awards. If this applies to you, you may want to explain.

Letter of Recommendation for Scholarship: If you are currently a Norfolk State student, give the
“Letter of Recommendation for Scholarship” to a member of the NSU faculty to complete. If you are a
transfer student, the recommendation should be completed by a faculty member at the last college or
