As part of our effort to support the healthcare industry's efforts to remedy the current nursing shortage, we've put together a scholarship available to nurses of all specialty areas.
Scholarship winners are chosen twice per year in August and January, and no applicant may be awarded more than once per year.
Applicants who are not chosen for the Fall are considered automatically for the Spring as well, but Spring applicants are not considered for the following Fall.
Applications are reset every year after the Spring winner has been chosen and are evaluated based on need, academic excellence, perseverance, circumstances, and a desire to help others.
Eligibility: Applicants must be full-time students enrolled in a regionally- or nationally-accredited institution & pursing a degree in nursing or a speciality of nursing with at least 30 completed credit hours.
