NOTE: This program was eliminated in 2009. Nursing is a seriously hot career field. Lots of people want to get into nursing as a permanent career but it requires a degree. If you live in Michigan or plan to attend nursing school in the state look into the Michigan Nursing Scholarship program. How does up to $4,000 per academic year sound?
You must be attending a participating school at least 1/2 time, and on track to gaining one of the following:
- Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) certification
- Associate Degree in Nursing (ADN)
- Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN)
- Masters of Science in Nursing (MSN)
Recipients are selected by your school’s financial aid office. How they determine recipients is up to them.
Sometimes need or superior performance in school are factors used in prioritizing who gets a scholarship.
Also, if you receive the award you’ll be agreeing to work as a nurse at one of several healthcare facilities in Michigan that participate in the Michigan Nursing Scholarship Program.
Or you could opt to teach nursing at a specified institution for however many years you received assistance. There’s no way around these obligations!
The money must be paid back – it will be treated as as loan – if you don’t follow through on your commitments.
For a complete list of eligibility requirements visit the program’s website [eliminated program]. There is no application form for students to submit to the Michigan Nursing Scholarship Program.
Contact the financial aid office at the Michigan school you plan to attend for information about being considered for a Michigan Nursing Scholarship.
