Many individuals hope to complete a degree in nursing. However, the cost of nursing education is not that economical, even at state or public colleges. In this case, many students look for ways to pay for the cost of education such as becoming a part-time worker and some apply persistently to scholarship programs offered to deserving students. Scholarships are designed that way – provide assistance to deserving students who demonstrate high aptitude academically speaking and financial needs. There are scholarships that are intended for other requirements aside from the two mentioned above such as being an immediate family member of a war veteran.
One such example is the American Legion Auxiliary, Department of Idaho Nursing Scholarship. This scholarship is open for students pursuing a degree in nursing in any accredited college or university in the state. The candidates must be 17 to 35 years of age. This scholarship is only for those taking up undergraduate study in any two or four-year nursing program. To apply for this scholarship, candidates must secure copy of the application form. The application packet must be submitted with that form, transcript of records, proof of eligibility (especially being an immediate family of a veteran), financial statement and recent photograph of the candidate. The application must be submitted to the local Auxiliary Unit.
The $1,000 scholarship award will go a long way in helping the recipient in his/her nursing studies. With this award, the recipient will not have to worry about his/her undergraduate studies and can focus more on academics.
