Many organizations offer scholarships to help students cover the costs of their nursing education. Student eligibility rules are created by the organization offering the scholarship. This scholarship list is not meant to be comprehensive or exhaustive. In addition, the College of Nursing and Health Sciences is not endorsing these scholarships. We are only sharing scholarship opportunities as we become aware of them.
