Scholarships and Grants

A number of scholarships and grants are available for qualified nursing students who need special assistance to finance their college education. Some scholarships do not have a financial need prerequisite for consideration. All students applying for financial aid are considered for aid for which they qualify. Students do not need to apply for specific scholarships and grants.  Most of these scholarships are originally awarded at time of admission into the Research/Rockhurst B.S.N. program and will be continued at Research as long as all requirements are met.
Following are scholarships and grants available to nursing students through Research College of Nursing.
