Applicants interested in applying for this particular scholarship must apply for financial aid at the Financial Aid Office of the University. The application for financial aid must be done on a yearly basis. Aid forms must be updated every time an application is filled out. Applicants must make sure the forms they are filling out are the correct forms for the school year involved.
The 1st of March is the deadline for the submission of application forms for the scholarship. This deadline applies to both currently enrolled and about to enroll students of the Nursing School. The financial aid will be made available to the applicant after the deadline date. However, there is no guarantee that an award will be given to applicants applying beyond the deadline.
New students of the nursing school about to enter school in the fall should submit their applications at the very least two months before the course starts. This will allow enough time to process the application.
The applicants are advised to facilitate their application for financial aid before they even gather news on their admission. However the aid application will only be processed after they have successfully gotten through admission.
