Scholarship Opportunities

Exceptional opportunities for scholarships and other financial awards are available to students in a declared major in the University of Arizona College of Nursing. Applications for College awards are available online for students admitted to a nursing program (Pre-Nursing, BSN, MEPN, DNP or PhD). Applications are collected on an annual basis and awarded for the academic year (fall, spring, summer).

Nursing Scholarships

The College of Nursing, through the support of many generous donors, is able to offer a variety of Nursing Scholarship Opportunities. Students file one general scholarship application to be considered for all possible donor awards.

The application for scholarships (fall 2016 - summer 2017) will be available April 5, 2016, and will close on April 29, 2016, at 4:30 p.m. (AZ). Decisions will be made on a rolling basis on an ongoing basis from the application close date throughout the summer. Recipients will receive notification via the email address indicated on their application. All recipients of donor awards must turn in a "thank you" note by the deadline in order to receive funding. Failure to supply a note by the deadline will result in revocation of the award.

In order to be eligible, all students who apply for College of Nursing Awards are required to complete the following items:

  1. Be a declared, admitted Nursing major (Pre-professional, BSN, MEPN, DNP, PhD)
  2. File a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA):
    Students are not required to accept any loans, grants or types of Federal Aid. International students are not required to complete this step.
  3. Register through Scholarship Universe:
    Scholarship Universe is a clearinghouse of scholarships at UA as well as external sources.
  4. Complete the Nursing Scholarship Application: Nursing Scholarship Application
    The application must be filled out completely at the time of application. Progress on the application cannot be saved. Applications stay closed after the deadline until the next annual cycle. A copy of the application can be viewed at: Scholarship Application Preview. Students may only submit the application one time and you may not log back in for edits. Please review the application copy and draft all responses prior to final submission. 

Spring Admitted BSN Students and MEPN Students

Scholarships are managed on a yearly basis, with fall as the starting term and summer as the concluding term. If you are admitted during the spring term as a BSN or the summer term as a MEPN student, you will be sent a separate application for a special cycle of awards for just your first term - please continue to fill out the annual application as well to maximize your opportunities.
