Scholarships & Financial Awards

Northeastern and CAMD provide scholarships and other financial support to a limited number of undergraduate students who have demonstrated high scholastic achievement. Qualifying for financial aid depends on a number of factors, including your family’s financial need, your academic profile, and the availability of university funds.

Undergraduate Scholarships

Merit Scholarships

Students who are in the top 10-15 percent of our applicant pool are considered for competitive merit awards, including the prestigious Dean’s Scholarship. Recipients are awarded $10,000-$25,000 annually. All fall freshman applicants for undergraduate admission to Northeastern are considered. Visit Merit Scholarships for information on how to apply for these and other undergraduate scholarships.

CAMD Creative Leaders Scholarship

All students who submit portfolios will be considered for a CAMD Creative Leaders Scholarship, ranging from $5,000-$20,000 annually. The scholarship identifies and celebrates applicants with exceptional skills in communications and the arts. Students who are awarded a Creative Leaders Scholarship exemplify the entrepreneurial and creative spirit of the college, and either show extraordinary ability in a CAMD focus area or have interdisciplinary interests that creatively combine fields between CAMD and another college. Learn how to submit a portfolio.

CAMD Dean’s Honors Fellows

A select group of Creative Leaders scholarship recipients will also be designated as Deans Fellows.  In addition to their scholarship award, these students will be offered special opportunities to hone their creative potential during their time in CAMD, including funding that can be used towards global Dialogue of Civilizations programs, faculty-led research for an Honors in the Discipline project, and exclusive annual Dean’s luncheons to share experiences in your creative endeavors, research projects and global travel.
