Funding your Nursing School Education

NursingExplorer.org

This is a searchable scholarship database created specifically for nursing students. The scholarships listed here are provided by nursing associations, educational institutions, foundations, for-profit/non-profit organizations, etc. These are relatively non-competitive scholarships compared to general/non-major specific scholarships. Some of the scholarships give preference to minority, veteran and disabled students. If you belong to such groups, you have a good chance of securing fund for your education from this list. Good luck!
