Manchester Nursing Success Scholarships

For the Fall 2024 cohort, Manchester University will provide $9,000 to in-state and $2,800 to out-of-state ABSN Second Degree students starting at Manchester University. The total award amount will be distributed evenly through the four semesters of the program. The scholarship, made possible by donors, does not require an extra application from students; instead, recipients will be determined based on their overall application to Manchester’s nursing program.
