If you’re an aspiring nurse who is looking for a scholarship, you should be aware of the Nursing Scholarship Program. In exchange for at least two years of service at a health care facility with a critical shortage of nurses, the Nursing Scholarship Program pays just about all the costs involved with getting nursing degrees, including:

  • tuition
  • required fees
  • other reasonable costs, including required books, clinical supplies, laboratory expenses, etc.
  • monthly stipend ($1,326 for the 2010-2011 academic year)

Nursing Scholarship Program Eligibility

Eligible Applicants

  • Begin classes no later than September 30
  • Free from any federal judgment liens
  • Free from existing service commitments
