How to Support Scholarships

Cost of Attendance

Through cost of attendance, our student-athletes have additional resources (stipend) above and beyond room, board, books and tuition that aid them in their adjustment of being a college student while having time demands that make it difficult for them to have a job to supplement their reasonable living expenses.

For NIU coaches and programs, cost of attendance allows the ability to recruit and retain premier student-athletes that will continue the storied tradition of NIU Athletics.

Your support of cost of attendance will ensure we are competitive in all sports and have the ability to be successful in areas of:

  • Recruiting
  • Academics
  • Student-Athlete Well-Being
