North Arizona University Awards More Than $450K Through 2NAU Scholarship
Northern Arizona University has awarded more than $450,000 to students through its 2NAU scholarship over the last three years.
2NAU is a joint-admission program that allows students to be admitted to the university while still finishing their Arizona community college courses. 2NAU students can access the school's student resources such as advising and library databases while pursuing an associate degree.
As of Fall 2014, northern Arizona University has awarded eligible 2nAU students a total of $481, 539. 2NAU students who have finished their associate degree and transitioned to NAU this semester have until March 1st to submit their community college transcripts to be eligible for the Spring 2015 scholarship funds.
The transition program, which launched in Fall 2010, is available through partnerships with most Arizona community colleges. It is designed for first or second semester community college students to guide them through their associate degree and seamlessly into their bachelor's degree program.
"The 2NAU scholarship demonstrates how Northern Arizona University values our transfer students," Doug Small, director of Strategic Partnerships and Business Development, said in a statement. "Northern Arizona University works hard to make a bachelor's degree affordable for students and their families so that they can make a difference in their communities."
Since Fall 2011, Northern Arizona University has offered exclusive scholarships to 2NAU students in hopes to ease the financial burden of transitioning to a bachelor's degree program.
