Between Towson University, the Department of Nursing, and external organizations, there are many scholarship opportunities for nursing students to explore.
All students, including pre-nursing, undergraduate nursing, and graduate nursing students, can explore general scholarship programs and listings by visiting the Towson University Financial Aid Office.
The Department of Nursing offers a number of scholarships each year to students enrolled in the nursing program. Nursing students who meet the eligibility criteria for any departmental scholarship may apply for consideration during the departmental scholarship application period each spring.
Departmental scholarships are only available to Towson nursing students enrolled in the undergraduate nursing major's basic/pre-licensure or degree completion options or the graduate nursing program. Eligibility criteria may vary by scholarship. Nursing students should refer to the Nursing Program Community page on Blackboard for more information about departmental scholarships and externship opportunities.
There are many organizations that offer scholarships for nursing students. Eligiblity criteria may vary, but most nursing-specific scholarships will require admission and matriculation into the nursing major in order to apply. They are not typically available to pre-nursing students.
Students are encouraged to explore the many scholarship resources that exist for nursing students. These resources are not affiliated with Towson University or the Department of Nursing. Please read all scholarship information carefully and contact any scholarship provider directly for assistance. For information on how external scholarships may apply to your student bill, visit the Private Scholarships page.
