Deadline May 22, 2014
The 2014 NURSE Corps Scholarship Program application cycle is now open. All completed applications must be submitted by May 22, 2014, at 7:30 pm, ET to be considered for an award. Please refer to the 2014 Application and Program Guidance for all of the program requirements.
Eligibility is open to students who are U.S. Citizens, nationals or lawful permanent residents and are enrolled or accepted in an accredited diploma, associate, baccalaureate or graduate nursing program; including Registered Nurse (RN) to Bachelor of Science (BSN) Bridge Programs.
Applicants are encouraged to begin the application process early. On average, it takes approximately 3 weeks to complete the application process. Please encourage applicants to locate supplemental documentation, as well as begin requesting letters of recommendations and official school transcripts.
The NURSE Corps Scholarship Program is expected to be competitive. A funding preference will be given to qualified applicants with the greatest financial need based on their Expected Family Contribution (EFC) between $0 and $5,550. Also, up to fifty percent of the funds will go towards awards made to nurse practitioners.
Scholarship support includes tuition, required fees, other reasonable educational costs, and a monthly living stipend (all taxable) for up to four years. For each year of financial support, a NURSE Corps Scholarship recipient serves one year at a NURSE Corps-approved facility in one of many high-need urban, rural, or frontier communities. The Program requires a minimum 2-year full-time service commitment (or part-time equivalent).
Applicants are encouraged to participate in either of the two technical assistance conference calls listed below, when questions will be addressed. To participate, please call 1-800-369-3140 and enter passcode: 9999132:
