Scholarship Opportunities

Exceptional opportunities for scholarships and other financial awards are available to students in a declared major in the University of Arizona College of Nursing. Applications for College awards are available online for students admitted to a nursing program (Pre-Professional Nursing, BSN, MEPN, DNP or PhD). Applications are collected on an annual basis and awarded for the academic year (fall, spring, summer).

Nursing Scholarships

The College of Nursing, through the support of many generous donors, is able to offer a variety of Nursing Scholarship Opportunities. Students file one general scholarship application to be considered for all possible donor awards.

The application for scholarships (fall 2015 - summer 2016) will be available March 30, 2015 and will close on April 24, 2015 at 4:30 p.m. (AZ). Decisions will be made on a rolling basis between April 27 and July 15. Recipients will receive notification via the email address indicated on their application. All recipients of donor awards must turn in a "thank you" note by the deadline in order to receive funding. Failure to supply a note by the deadline will result in revocation of the award.

In order to be eligible, all students who apply for College of Nursing Awards are required to complete the following items:

  • Be a declared Nursing major (Pre-professional, BSN, MEPN, DNP, PhD)
  • File a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA): http://www.fafsa.ed.gov/
    Students are not required to accept any loans, grants or types of Federal Aid. International students are not required to complete this step.
  • Register through Scholarship Universe: scholarshipuniverse.arizona.edu
    Scholarship Universe is a clearinghouse of scholarships at UA as well as external sources.

File the College of Nursing Scholarship Annual Awards Application

The application must be filled out completely at the time of application. Progress on the application cannot be saved. Applications stay closed after the deadline until the next annual cycle. A copy of the application can be viewed at: Application Preview. Students may only submit the application one time and you may not log back in for edits. Please review the application copy and draft all responses prior to final submission.
