The goal of the Neilsen Scholarship Program (NSP) is to support students with spinal cord injury in their pursuit of higher education. In an effort to eliminate barriers to academic success, these scholarships cover tuition and fees for undergraduate or graduate studies, and provide supplemental financial support for eligible students to pursue an education in their chosen degree program.
Grants are made for both undergraduate and graduate studies to a select group of colleges, universities and community colleges. Applications are accepted, by invitation only, from selected academic institutions.
