Scholarship money abounds for students pursuing undergraduate or graduate education in nursing. Below is just a small sampling of such funding-much of it available only to minority nursing students. All awards have various criteria for recipients, which may include financial need, academic achievement and involvement in community service. In addition, some awards require the recipient to work in a specific location-often a medically underserved area-after graduation. Contact the sponsoring organizations for more detailed information.
