Nursing Scholarship Opportunities

Nursing students


Whether you are applying to the MU's Nursing Program or you're already enrolled, we encourage you to apply for scholarships offered through a variety of local and national organizations.

For High School Seniors Applying to the Nursing Program

For Current Nursing Program Students

For Adult (non-traditional) Nursing Program Students

For Accelerated BSN Students

For Minority Nursing Students

Despite making up nearly 40% of the population, according to the U.S. Census Bureau, minorities aren’t proportionally represented in nursing. According to the 2017 National Nursing Workforce Study by the National Council of State Boards of Nursing, only 19.2% of RN respondents were minorities.

One way to increase diversity in nursing is to lower the burden of attaining a nursing degree. Earmarking scholarship funds for minority communities including Native American, Asian, Alaska Native, and African American nursing students is key to fostering diversity in nursing.
