Nurses are the backbone of the US healthcare system. They work the front lines in hospitals and clinics, providing critical care to those who need it.
Unfortunately the US is currently experiencing a shortage of qualified nurses. Yet as the global pandemic has demonstrated, the role of nursing has never been more important.
The WiseGeek Nurse Appreciation No-Essay Scholarship is meant to support nurses and encourage more young people to consider a nursing career. The award will help current or aspiring nurses pay their student loans or tuition.
The application deadline is May 14, 2021. Winners will be announced on Jun 15, 2021.
The scholarship award is $500.
The winner will be publicly announced on Jun 15, 2021. 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.
We will send the award check to the financial aid office of the winner’s academic institution or future academic institution in their name, and in the name of their institution (depending on the school’s requirements). If the student's academic institution does not have a financial aid office, the student will receive the funding directly.
Before we award the scholarship, the winner will be required to verify their academic enrollment status by providing a copy of their most recent transcript.
