The Center for Nursing provides a range of scholarship opportunities to assist current and future nursing professionals with their education.
The new application will be open April 15 - June 1, 2019. There is only one application cycle, so students should apply even if they are not yet mid way in their nursing program, but will be during this year. Applications will be considered when you reach the mid point.
When applying for Fall/Spring/Summer semesters, you will not need to reapply, your school can verify that you remain in good standing for the Spring semester.
