Nursing Scholarships

Realizing Potential

The Ron and Kathy Assaf College of Nursing is committed to providing educational opportunities for those who want to enter this exciting profession and for those practicing nurses seeking to advance their careers by obtaining higher degrees. Our undergraduate programs provide the student with the ability to enter the nursing profession as a B.S.N. Our graduate programs offer nurses opportunities to pursue careers in education, health systems leadership, informatics specialized nursing careers, research, and executive roles in health care.

Financial hardship is a leading barrier to academic pursuit and success. Through the vision and generosity of a number of individuals and organizations, many deserving students at our college have benefited from scholarship support.  Without philanthropic gifts, the majority of our students would not be able to complete their education, achieve career success and begin to make contributions to the communities where they will serve. We are grateful to those individuals and organizations who have joined the Ron and Kathy Assaf College of Nursing in helping our students to realize their potential in new and innovative roles in today’s changing health care system.
