I've been looking through several nursing scholarship
databases (fastweb.com, discovernursing.com, etc...), and was wondering what the actual odds are for winning one of these scholarships
. I'm currently looking for scholarships outside of the ones my school offers, and my search has come up pretty dry. A few things working against me: 1. I already have a bachelors degree 2. I am not a minority, and 3. my income level on my FASFA forms looks decent. What they don't take into account is that I'll be quitting my job and going back to school full time for by BSN in the fall. I've also been putting my husband through grad school for the past 2 years, so we don't have much in terms of savings. My husband and I will both be in school full time for the next 1.5 years, so I'm desperate for some additional financial help. Also, I'm not sure where we'll be living after we both graduate, so I can't look into hospital tuition reimbursement programs.
So.....Does anyone have any suggestions for any specific scholarships that I should apply for? Any suggestions would be a great help. I just don't want to waste my time pulling together all of my transcripts, writing the essays, filling out forms, etc... for each scholarship I see. (that gets pretty expensive as well). I was just wondering if anyone would be willing to share any info or advice they may have. Thanks for your help!!!
