Undergraduate Scholarship Information

The College of Nursing has a limited number of scholarships to be awarded annually. These awards are intended to be supplemental to more comprehensive forms of need-based financial aid. Therefore, it is necessary that a student applied for need-based financial aid through the University by filing the FAFSA forms (http://www.fafsa.ed.gov/).

The majority of these scholarships are awarded annually at the beginning of the fall semester. Announcements regarding scholarships are available online at the College of Nursing web site. For specific information on dates and application procedures, all students must visit the Christine E. Lynn College of Nursing website at http://nursing.fau.edu. The Financial Aid and Scholarship section is located under the “Admissions” tab. The College of Nursing content is considered the most current information on all issues and overrides any information that might be found in this section.

It is advisable for students to begin the search for financial aid and scholarships early in their career at Florida Atlantic University.
