Pittman Scholars Grant

A premier, Christ-centered college education can be affordable to you. The Pittman Scholars Grant is a financial award of 75 percent of tuition cost* (including federal and state grants). *Not including room and board cost.

Who’s Eligible? 
  • Students who are admitted to UNW who are eligible for a Pell Grant and whose parents have not completed a four-year college degree.

  2. Complete the FAFSA application to determine
    financial need/eligibility (or MN Dream Act if
