Award Selection

  1. Scholarships and/or loans are awarded in compliance with applicable funding agencies’ regulations, guidelines, and/or criteria.
  2. The College’s Financial Aid Committee is responsible for selecting scholarship, loan or traineeship recipients, with the most qualified applicants selected first. The two primary criteria are:
    • Ability to be successful as a student (e.g. GPA, higher achiever) and
    • Financial need as determined by the FAFSA.

Loans

Nursing Faculty Loan Program (NFLP)

The federally-funded Nursing Faculty Loan Program (NFLP) can make graduate school more affordable for those students planning to become full-time teaching nursing faculty. Graduates with NFLP loans who accept and maintain a full-time faculty position at any U.S. accredited school of nursing could have up to 85% of their loan forgiven.
