Making Strides

Cares Act Funding Eliminates Outstanding Student Balances and NSU Receives Donation from Jack Kent Cooke Foundation

Norfolk State University continues to make strides in seeking to be one of the most affordable universities in the nation. This effort has been galvanized by the allocation of $2.5M dollars in Cares Act funding to eliminate outstanding balances for more than 1200 students. President Javaune Adams-Gaston announced that the university would clear all unpaid tuition and fee balances for students who attended NSU from the Spring 2020 term through the Spring 2021 term. This funding is critical to help students continue pursuit of their academic dreams at a time when COVID-19 has severely impacted financial resources for thousands of families nationwide. 

Even more student support has been garnered by a recent donation of $1,040,000 from the Jack Kent Cooke Foundation. These funds will be used to provide scholarships and create an endowment for the DNIMAS program at NSU. DNIMAS is one of the Crown Jewels of the NSU academic program. Scholarships will be provided for DNIMAS students beginning with the fall 2021 semester.
