Every year, we award a number of scholarships to Nursing students who demonstrate both financial need and outstanding commitment to their studies and their future in the nursing field. Note: These scholarships are only available to Nursing students admitted into the pre-licensure or RN-BS programs.

Eligibility details for each scholarship can found in the “Scholarship Information Packet” link under Materials.

Scholarship applications are due by March 15 for the following school year. The Student Admissions, Progression and Concerns Committee reviews the applications and notifies recipients by the end of March. Students who will graduate before the start of the next school year are not eligible to apply.

Students who have received departmental scholarships in the past do not automatically receive a scholarship again. Applicants must apply each year with the same potential opportunity.
