Legacy Grants are available to full-time students with a family or church connection to Northwestern. Students are eligible for a Legacy Grant if:
- A parent or grandparent attended Northwestern for at least three semesters
- A sibling is currently enrolled or has graduated from NWC
- The student attends a Reformed Church in America congregation
Students receive a $1,500 Legacy Grant if they meet one of the above criteria, $2,000 if they meet two, or $2,500 for meeting all three.
Northwestern’s admissions application allows students to indicate which criteria they meet. The Legacy Grant is awarded automatically by the financial aid office upon their acceptance.
