Scholarships & Financial Aid
Niagara University is one of the least expensive private institutions in the region. It is also one of the most generous schools nationwide when it comes to providing financial aid and transfer scholarship programs for our students. In fact, more than 98 percent of our incoming undergraduate students receive assistance of some kind, averaging over $17,000 per year. This package may consist of a combination of scholarships, grants, student employment and loans.
A Niagara University education may not be as expensive as you think.

There is no application for the transfer scholarships/awards but a couple provisions apply:
- You must be accepted to the University as a full-time matriculated student. Award amounts will be adjusted for less than full-time status provided the student is enrolled for a minimum of six credit hours per semester.
- Though not required, we advise you to file the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid)
- For undergraduate students only.
Niagara is also pleased to offer $1,000 per year scholarships to those students that participate in either Alpha Beta Gamma (ABG) or Phi Theta Kappa (PTK). The only requirement is that your forward a letter from your chapter advisor stating that you are a member in good standing. Both awards are renewable for up to three years. Students may not combine the scholarships if they possess membership in both organizations.
