The School of Nursing has several scholarship awards for full-time students. Most of these are need-based. These awards are described in detail below.
- Whitehead Scholarship: A lump-sum scholarship fund for nursing students is given to the school of nursing by the Whitehead Foundation on an annual basis. They are need-based scholarships for Christian females from southern states. To be considered, please complete the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid). The financial aid office determines need eligibility and awards are made by the School of Nursing. All eligible students are considered. Awards are made to students at the junior and senior levels. The amount of individual awards is based on the total donation from the Whitehead Foundation and the number of eligible students.
