Our Opportunities

Through the generous support of donors, the NOVA Foundation is able to offer the scholarships listed on this website. To apply for these scholarships click “Sign Up” to create an account and follow the instructions provided in the NOVA Scholarship Tutorial to apply for these opportunities before the scholarship application deadline noted below.

You may submit one general application to be considered for multiple “auto match” NOVA Foundation scholarships during the current scholarship application cycle. After submitting your general application you may be presented with additional recommended scholarship opportunities that you may apply for individually.

There are three scholarship application cycles (fall, spring and summer) per academic year that are based on the date of the scholarship application deadline. When the application deadline falls within a particular semester then that scholarship is associated with the scholarship cycle for that semester. Spring and summer cycle scholarships are generally awarded for the upcoming academic year. Scholarships with a deadline in the fall term are typically awarded for that fall term and the upcoming spring term.

NOVA offers different scholarships during three separate application periods each year. You are encouraged to apply for additional scholarships each cycle.

The application period for NOVA’s Spring 2021 cycle is January 11, 2021 through February 19, 2021 (Scholarships are awarded for 2021-2022 enrollment).

Additional Scholarship Application Periods in 2021

  • Summer 2021 Cycle: May 2021 – June 2021 (Scholarships are awarded for 2021-2022 enrollment)
  • Fall 2021 Cycle: August 2021 – October 2021 (Scholarships are awarded for spring 2022 enrollment)

Visit this website for specific dates as each cycle approaches.

Please note that you must be admitted to NOVA to create an account and to apply for scholarships on this website.
Additional scholarships may be available through your high school, employer, or other organizations. Please review the External Scholarship Guidelines for more information.
