Potential Funding Options

  • Financial Aid

  • College Heights Foundation Nursing Scholarships

    • Several small scholarships and a few larger ones are available for nursing students through the College Heights Foundation.

    • Students who wish to be considered for these WKU nursing scholarships must apply using the new TOPDollar Website.
    • Use of the TOPDollar website allows students to fill out one application form apply for all WKU scholarships for which you are eligible.

    • Information such as your major and your WKU GPA will be automatically added to the form. 

    • Deadlines apply for many of the scholarships, so in general you should apply as early as possible. 

    • Students will be reminded via email to update their information each year, so if something changes which makes you eligible for more scholarships, you should be sure to update regularly.
  •  Hospital Based Scholarships

    • 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.

  • ROTC Scholarship

    • 100% tuition and fee scholarships available for those students interested in serving as an Officer in the United States Army Nursing Corps. Upon completion of your BSN and ROTC, full time (Active Duty) or part-time (1 weekend per month) options are available.

    • Contact Mr. Brandon Smith for more information, and to see if you qualify, at 270-745-6054 or
