Sinclair School of Nursing Scholarships

Scholarship Value: $5,000
Awards Available: 50
Award Deadline: Jun 15, 2022

The Sinclair School of Nursing offers a number of internal nursing-specific scholarships (see the full list below). These awards are made possible through direct giving to the Sinclair School of Nursing by alumni and friends.


Scholarships are available for undergraduate, graduate, and post-graduate students. Students in the Traditional BSN program must be accepted to or enrolled in the clinical nursing major to be eligible for these awards.


To be eligible for scholarships that require proof of financial need, students are encouraged to complete the FAFSA at their earliest convenience. The FAFSA opens on October 1.

January 1 is Mizzou's priority deadline for completing the FAFSA. Submitting the FAFSA well ahead of the scholarship application deadline improves your chances of receiving a scholarship.

*International students should not complete the FAFSA, as this can cause problems or delays in the scholarship application process.

How to Apply

During the spring semester, students can log on to ScholarshipUniverse and answer matching questions to find the scholarships for which they qualify. Students can complete applications for each of those awards. For more information, see MU Financial Aid's instructions for using ScholarshipUniverse.
