Scholarships and Financial Aid Resources for Nursing
The purpose of this program is to assure an adequate supply of appropriately trained professional nurses. Encourage persons from populations that are currently underrepresented in the nursing profession to enter that profession.
Federal Student Aid for College or Career School - The U.S. Department of Education provides grants, loans, and work-study opportunities to eligible
students attending participating colleges or career schools. The Department is the source of nearly 70 percent of all student aid awarded in the U.S. each year.
The vast majority of the Department's aid is not based on academic merit. For further information and an online application, visit the Department's Web site at
www.studentaid.ed.gov. Alternatively, you may call the Federal Student Aid Information Center toll free: 1-800-4-FED-AID (1-800-433-3243). TTY for the hearing-impaired is 1-800-730-8913.
The Foundation administers a number of scholarship and loan repayment programs for health professional students and graduates. All program recipients are required to provide direct patient care in a medically underserved area (MUA) of California as designated by the Office of Statewide Health Planning and Development (OSHPD). The period of obligated professional service is one to three years (depending upon program).
