Institutional Grants


This policy applies to all students who enroll at any NUC University location in Puerto Rico and meet the eligibility criteria of the grant for which they are applying. Students may participate in any of these grants, regardless of whether they receive other (non-institutional) financial aid, as long as they comply with the requirements established in this policy.

Students applying for any financial aid administered by NUC University are required to report any additional external financial aid they expect to receive to fund their studies (Veterans, Vocational Rehabilitation, AmeriCorps, etc.).

The application is available and must be submitted to the Financial Aid Office. Applications will be evaluated on a first-come, first-served basis, so NUC University encourages you to apply early, as funds available for these grants are limited. NUC University will disburse the amount of the grant awarded at the end of the academic term for which the funds were allocated.

These grants are not available to students enrolled in continuing education courses. Students may only participate in one institutional grant.

“Por ti, Contigo”

The “Por ti, Contigo” grant is awarded to new students enrolled in programs leading to a diploma, associate’s, bachelor’s or master’s degree.

High School Seniors

Because we know it has been a very difficult school year, with many obstacles; because you have been struggling all year to complete your high school and you finally did it.  But we know you want to achieve more, so we’ve created a scholarship especially for you to help you take the next step.

Healthcare Heroes

Because the health of Puerto Rico depends on people like you, with your vocation to protect us and serve the country, we have created the Healthcare Heroes scholarship. This scholarship is designed for people who wish to prepare to become healthcare professionals.

”Creciendo Contigo”

Because we know that you want to continue to prepare professionally and nothing can stop you, we created the “Creciendo Contigo” grant. This grantis specially designed for students who have already completed a degree at NUC University and wish to study a new career.
