Northcentral University will award eight $20,000 NCU Kick-Starter Grants to new students who have applied and started an NCU master’s or doctoral degree program on or before March 28, 2016. The eight scholars selected will attend NCU to the completion of their chosen master’s or doctoral degree and, upon graduation, NCU will present a $20,000 check to be utilized by the recipients in pursuit of kick-starting their dreams.

Recipients may choose to utilize their grant to fund a research study, launch a new business, start a nonprofit or implement other projects to fulfill their dreams after graduation.

“NCU’s goal as an institute of higher education is to prepare students and graduates to reach higher and fulfill their goals, both professionally and personally,” said George Burnett, President, Northcentral University. “The NCU Kick-Starter Grant was conceived to invest in the University’s graduates and provide the chosen recipients with a $20,000 check to kick-start their goals and dreams, to make a difference, not just in their own lives, but a positive impact on their communities.”

Applicants will submit an essay, video or audio that describes the purpose and motivations behind their goal – and how an NCU Kick-Starter Grant will help them achieve it. Students must submit their entries, and start their graduate degree program, between February 1, 2016 and March 28, 2016.

Applicants must meet all admission requirements for their desired degree program at Northcentral University. The grant award will be based on the NCU selection committee’s assessment of the overall quality of the entry and made without regard to race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, age, national origin, disability, veteran status, or any other category protected by federal, state, or local law.

Selected NCU Kick-Starter Grant recipients will be announced on April 20, 2016. For further information, and to apply for the grant, visit
