Being a single mother is difficult as it is, so when single mothers decide to take on the new challenges of college, it can be much more of a hurdle.
However, single mothers going back to earn their education often have the kind of persistence and dedication to persevere through these difficulties. With that being said, it isn’t easy to balance being a mother, supporting a family, and pursuing education. As a way to support single mothers earning their nursing degrees, Vicki Sartin’s Purpose in Nursing Scholarship will offer financial assistance to passionate single mothers.
To apply, you must be a single mother pursuing a nursing degree. In your application, please share how you balance being a parent while attending school and include what inspired you to become a nurse.

Award amounts per winner are designated by the donor. Check the award amount for a detailed breakdown.
The winner will be publicly announced on Sep 15, 2022. Prior to the announcement date, we may contact finalists with additional questions about their application. We will work with donors to review all applications according to the scholarship criteria. Winners will be chosen based on the merit of their application.
Award checks will be sent to the financial aid office of the winner's academic institution in their name to be applied to their tuition, and in the name of their institution (depending on the school's requirements). If the award is for a qualified educational non-tuition expense, we will work with the winner directly to distribute the award and make sure it goes towards qualified expenses.
Before we award the scholarship, the winner will be required to confirm their academic enrollment status. Depending on the circumstances, verification of Student ID and/or their most recent transcript will be required.
