Nursing Scholarships

Several small scholarships and a few larger ones are available for nursing students through the College Heights Foundation and other WKU foundations. Students who wish to be considered for these WKU scholarships must apply using the general WKU Scholarship application.

To be eligible for a nursing scholarship you must apply using the application form no later than April 15th of the prior year. For example, nursing students seeking funding for Fall 2013 must submit an application for funding by April 15th, 2013.

The application form can be found here: http://www.wku.edu/scholarship/

There are different forms for freshman, transfer students and continuing students.

Click on Forms on the red header bar for the correct forms for you.


There are also some scholarships for nursing students available from local hospitals. The hospital is responsible for selecting the students for these awards, and the process varies from hospital to hospital. Most of these require a work commitment from the student after graduation, so if you know you want to work for a specific hospital, please check with that facility to see if any scholarships are available.
