NBSS is dedicated to helping students afford the cost of your education, and we are proud to announce our newest scholarship program, "Pell Yes!" – a new grant which provides up to $6,195 each year to need-qualified students who already hold a bachelor's degree. This gift replicates the Federal Pell Grant, a valuable tool already available to non-degree-holding students, and is just one of many types of aid we offer at NBSS.
