I looked at the ones at Discover Nursing, but didn't find any that I really wanted to apply for. Most were of the $100 and $500 variety, but it seems one had to jump through hoops to apply. I didn't feel like writing any essay and the like. I was going to apply for the Tylenol scholarship, which is for people in nursing/medical field, but..............once again, I didn't feel like writing an essay. Plus a lot of those national scholarships I think would be so hard to get - almost like playing the lottery. :chuckle Someone does have to get them, but.....................
I did receive a $20K Transfer scholarship through the school I will be attending. I didn't even know about it, but I guess all transfer students are automatically eligible. I was shocked, and very happy, but I don't know how much of it I will use. It is $2500 per semester, and since I'm only going for my ADN right now, I'd only use $10K of it. Plus you have to take at least 12 credits, and the one thing I was trying to do was get all my pre-req's done so I wouldn't have to take a full course load, so I may not be able to use any of it.
The Women's Club in my little town offers a scholarship each year of $750, which I applied for. It hardly ever gets used, so I think my chances of that are about 99%. It is just for women going back to school after being at home, or trying a second career. Just up my alley!
I think there are a lot of them out there, but some are much more time-consuming to apply for then others. I also think that being May now, many deadlines are drawing near, or have passed. Don't let that deter you. Try your state's board of education website also. I found quite a bit through them. Also, even if you are not attending a state-funded school, look on their websites. The scholarships they list are not always just for their students, but for students anywhere in that state. It's worth a shot.
