The College of Nursing is now working in conjunction with UMSL's Office of Financial Aid to offer a common scholarship application. To be considered for a variety of need and merit-based endowed scholarships, nursing students must complete an application through the Office of Financial Aid each year by April 1. Students must meet the following minimum qualifications to be considered; however, some scholarships may require a higher GPA and/or additional application materials:
- Admitted to the College of Nursing as one of the following:
- Clinical student in one of the 3 Pre-Licensure BSN Options
- RN to BSN student
- Graduate student (MSN, DNP or PhD)
- 2.5 cumulative GPA for undergraduate students; 3.0 cumulative GPA for graduate students
- Completed Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA)
Two-Step Application Process
The scholarship application has two parts: The General Application and scholarship-specific applications. All students must complete the General Application before they can apply to specific scholarships. Once the General Application is complete, one of two things will happen:
- The General Application will automatically be applied to those scholarship opportunities that don’t require additional information.
- The student will be able to apply to specific scholarships that have additional questions.
Please take a few minutes to read through the scholarship application tutorial before submitting your application.
If you have questions about submitting the scholarship application or completing the FAFSA, please contact the Office of Financial Aid. If you have questions about the scholarships themselves, please contact the College of Nursing.
A variety of external scholarships are also available to nursing students. Please click on the links below to find out more. Additional information on external scholarships, including scholarship application tips, can be found here.
