How It Works
The Huskie Pledge Grant covers tuition and general fee expenses that aren't met by other financial aid. To determine the amount of your Huskie Pledge Grant, we'll look at your initial NIU, federal and state aid. This includes:
- Federal Pell and Supplemental Grants.
- Illinois Monetary Award Program (MAP) grants.
- Merit scholarships.
- Advantage Grant (our traditional need-based grant).
If you qualify, you'll receive a Huskie Pledge Grant in the amount of any remaining expenses for tuition and general fees.
If you continue to meet renewal eligibility criteria, you'll receive the same Huskie Pledge Grant amount for up to four more years, regardless of changes to your other financial aid.
