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 Fall 2021 cycle will be open from August 30, 2021 through September 30, 2021 (Recipients will be notified in December 2021. Scholarships are awarded for 2021-2022 enrollment. Nursing scholarship are awarded based on Spring 2022 enrollment).
