Undergraduate College of Nursing Scholarships

The Christine E. Lynn College of Nursing receives funding for several Nursing scholarships awarded for Fall and Spring semesters. The amount awarded is based on the "need" of the student as determined by the FAFSA. Please note that applicants must complete both the FAFSA and the College of Nursing applications to be considered for awards. 

The application for academic year, AY 2016 - 17 will open May 16 and end July 5, 2016

This application is also used for the Palm Healthcare Foundation Scholarships. Be sure to indicate on your application if you are interested in Palm Health Care scholarships. Additionally, indicate if you are planning to specifically work with children and/or the elderly populations. Scholarships, such as The Matthew Forbes Romer Foundation fund students who plan on working with children.

U.S. Public Health Service Student Extern Program

The U.S. Public Health Service offers a Commissioned Corps Officer Student Training and Extern Program (COSTEP) for junior or senior full-time students to serve on the frontlines of public health while completing a baccalaureate or master’s degree. Juniors may be interested in the summer program to gain a paid clinical experience after they complete their junior year of nursing education. Seniors can receive an early commissioning as an officer with full benefits and salary while studying in the senior year. If you are interested in a public health career, we encourage you to apply. A Senior COSTEP application must be postmarked by December 31 of the year before you begin your final year of school.
