School of Nursing Scholarships

The Georgia Southern University Foundation provides a variety of scholarships eligible to students through Georgia Southern University’s MyScholarships online scholarship application portal. Through this portal, you can easily search, review requirements, apply and accept awards for available scholarships. Participants will get email notifications if further steps such as recommendations, resumes or additional questions are required.

All scholarships are awarded annually during the summer months for both fall and spring semesters. All students will be able to apply for scholarships at the beginning of their first semester.

How to Apply

In order to apply for scholarships, you are required to complete the online scholarship application through the MyScholarships link by the deadlines listed below.  Once the application is completed, you are automatically matched with the awards for which you qualify. Students may go in and make updates to the application at any time. If you wish to narrow your application to scholarships available only to nursing students, type “Nursing” in the search box to filter your results.

If you receive a scholarship you will be required to submit a thank you note through MyScholarships. Your application is good for one year.

Financial Aid Facts

If students have transient permission from Georgia Southern University’s Registrar’s Office to take core courses at another institution, the Financial Aid Office can process a consortium agreement with the other school and process the student’s financial aid. Students must be prepared to pay the fees up front and get reimbursed after the semester is over. The disbursement of financial aid for that semester is done after the grades have been received and posted in our Registrar’s Office. Grades must be received within a reasonable time frame. If the funds are reconciled for the academic year (July 15th for HOPE, September 30th for federal aid) and the grades are received after that date, we can not disburse the aid. Note that UGA independent study allows students a full year to complete the course, but the student would have to complete it within the normal semester time frame in order to receive the financial aid.
