Nursing Scholarship Program Now Accepting Application


Published: April 12, 2010

The Health Resources and Services Administration of the U. S. Department of Health and Human Services is now accepting student applications for the Nursing Scholarship Program for next year. Go to http://www.hrsa.gov/loanscholarships/scholarships/Nursing/ for additional information.

The Nursing Scholarship pays tuition, fees, other education costs and a living stipend to students in accredited RN training programs. In exchange, upon graduation, scholars work for at least 2 years at a facility, such as a health center, rural health clinic, nursing home or hospital, that has a critical shortage of nurses.

Applications will be accepted until Thursday, May 6, at 5 pm ET. It’s expected that about 500 applicants will be selected to receive the scholarship in FY 2010.
