NSU Foundation

A foundation to build on.
We may never know how many students were unable to attend NSU because they simply could not afford it. But we do know how many have been able to attend. Last year alone, 2,060 NSU students received more than $2.25 million in scholarships thanks to the NSU Foundation – an average of $1,080 per student. Your contribution can make all the difference in the life of a young student. And, someday, that young student just may make all the difference in the lives of us all. Please give generously. The NSU Foundation strives to unite, lead and implement the strategic mission and vision of Northern State University to further the university’s goals. The committee also works to develop a spirit of loyalty and fraternity among alumni so they will actively support the university in programs such as student recruitment, student relations and projects; and public relations.

There are many worthy causes to support. Few, however, have the far-reaching effect of a transformed mind. What more worthy investment could there be?
