It is the responsibility of students who are benefiting from the scholarship programmes to ensure that the appropriate conference confirms in writing to the university the existence of a scholarship in their name. Otherwise, the students will be required to meet their obligations through regular payments.
Several academic departments are the recipients of annual academic assistance NCU scholarships provided by alumni and other supporters of the university. The scholarships are awarded annually to students in those departments who meet eligibility requirements.
