Nursing Education Scholarship Program


Scholarship Value: $10,000
Awards Available: 10

Purpose

The goal of the Nursing Education Scholarship Program is to increase the number of nurses available for employment in Illinois by offering scholarships to overcome financial barriers to education. The program provides financial assistance to qualified individuals pursuing an associate degree in nursing, an associate degree in applied sciences in nursing, a hospital based diploma in nursing, a baccalaureate degree in nursing, a graduate degree in nursing or a certificate in practical nursing.

General Program Information

Applications must be postmarked by May 31 of the current year. Applicants are notified whether the application is complete. Only one notice/request for additional information will be provided. Only complete applications will be considered for a scholarship.

The scholarship pays only for coursework within the nursing curriculum for which the recipient is funded; it does not pay for pre-requisite coursework. The expense for coursework applied to another degree will not be paid nor will it be considered when determining eligibility for a living expense stipend.

Applicants who are in default on other educational loans and/or scholarships received from state or federal funds or who have other outstanding debt to the state of Illinois are not eligible to receive these scholarship funds.

Applicants are not required to disclose their Social Security Number on the application form; however, if selected, the Social Security Number will be required.

It is the applicant’s responsibility to notify program staff if any information on their application changes.
