Legacy Grant

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.
