Scholarship Requirements: Please make sure that you read the criteria for each scholarship carefully as some individual scholarships have specific essay criteria that need to be addressed. Some scholarships are selected by specific recommendations and need to have the recommendation form completed and attached to the application. In addition, some scholarships are for students on a specific campus or in a specific degree program or option.
General essays are required for all scholarships and can be no longer than one page in 12 point font. Please submit an essay that includes each of the following criteria:
- From your perspective, “What is nursing’s biggest challenge today?”
- Something unique about yourself
- List 2-3 other attributes or achievements
- Your level of financial need
Interested students should fill out one application and submit it to the student’s current campus scholarship representative along with the required essay and student involvement log. Campus scholarship representatives and faculty will review all application materials and nominate students for specific scholarships based on the student’s application. Application materials should be submitted in the following order:
- Scholarship Application (one)
- Essay (only one unless submitting an application for a scholarship with specific essay requirements other than those listed above)
- Appropriate Student Involvement Log (one)
NOTE: Accepting a scholarship may affect a studen’ts financial aid. Please contact the Financial Aid Office at (406) 994-2845 if you have any questions about that.
