Funding your education
There are many options for funding your education which may include both federal and state Financial Aid and scholarships.
School of Nursing & Health Studies Scholarships
The School of Nursing and Health Studies (SNHS) offers a variety of scholarships, including Recruitment and Retention scholarships based on Merit, Research, Community-engagement, and those to support students experiencing an emergency or hardship. SNHS scholarships strive to ensure that higher education remains accessible and extends the mission of the School. By establishing a School-wide NHS scholarship program, incoming and continuing students in all of our programs have the opportunity to apply to multiple scholarships using a universal application. The School’s scholarships are funded primarily by donations and institutional resources thus availability of funding varies annually. Retention scholarships are intended for continuing students and require the student to apply. Recruitment scholarships are intended for graduate students who are in the process of applying to the program and do not require an application. Scholarship applications are generally reviewed and awarded in the Fall through Spring quarters each year.
The SNHS Scholarships reflect the values and mission of the school:
Improving the Health of Diverse Communities: these types of scholarships consider a student’s commitment to community engagement and diversity.
Excellence in Education: these types of scholarships consider a student’s academic merit.
Hardship and/or Financial Need-Based: these types of scholarships consider extenuating circumstances that may have impacted a student’s academic progress or success.
All SNHS students are encouraged to apply.
