Scholarships & Financial Aid for Nursing Students

Small scholarships are generously given by the College’s Alumni Association; students should check with their own professional organizations for funding opportunities. Depending on funding, federal loan forgiveness programs are sometimes available for full-time (9 credits in fall/spring, 7 credits in summer) students who teach in schools of nursing upon receipt of their degree. Small awards are available to support dissertation research through the College of Nursing, Sigma Theta Tau International chapters, and through the American Nurses Foundation Awards given through the regional research organizations (SNRS, ENRS, MNRS, WIN).

Scholarship Award Process

The College of Nursing is responsible for awarding any scholarships that are established through the MUSC Foundation. Any full or part time students enrolled in the College of Nursing are eligible for scholarships.

All newly admitted students who have paid their matriculation fees and continuing students in good standing will be considered for scholarships. Scholarship allocations are made fall, spring, and summer semesters and reported to the Office of Financial Aid and Office of Student Accounting.

Awards are made by the CON Scholarship Committee based on academic standing, financial need, and scholarship criteria. The mission and values of MUSC and the College of Nursing may also be considered.

Students receiving scholarship awards are expected to write a thank you note and provide a copy to the Office of Student Services. The Director of Development may request a donor/recipient meeting. (Click for a sample thank you note)
