    • receive up to 4 years of financial assistance.
    • live and learn on campus.
    • work one-on-one with our Executives in Residence to develop leadership skills.
    • gain real-world business experience through internships and professional development opportunities with NSU's esteemed career partners.

Professionally I am in a place I never imagined I would be. I was good in school, and I had aspirations, but Pathway Scholars gave me important experiences outside of the classroom. My fellow Pathway Scholars are lifelong partners of mine.
