  1. I am applying - who else is? Anyone received the scholarship and have tips? Would love to get this and ditch the loans I've applied for! I'm starting an ABSN program in May. Here we go!

    I applied last year but no luck. I'll be a senior in a BSN program in the Fall, I might apply again.

    I'm applying! Does anyone have any tips or someone who is not in the primary Financial Aid bracket? I missed by just $300! Has anyone gotten the scholarship who was not in the primary bracket for financial need?

    I am applying this year and would love to hear from someone who applied and was accepted. How do you find out if you're in the primary financial aid bracket?

    I am applying also. Starting my ADN program in 2 weeks, and I am in the first financial preference group, so we will see what happens. There is a webinar next week on the 20th in the evening where they will be doing a question/answer session as well as giving out some more information. Good luck!

    Do you need to register for the webinar?

    I'll be applying! I have some good LOR's but my accumulative GPA is a 3.65 so i think that will hurt me. Worst thing they can say is no, so it's worth a shot!

    I was planning on applying, but I'm not eligible because I have a previous student loan that had been in default I'm not sure if that renders me ineligible for loan repayment as well, but I guess probably yes

    Why would your GPA hurt you?

    Jm976711 that is definitely a strong GPA, you should apply. I also found out it is first come/first serve to access the webinar. I will be on it tonight! Hope to get a lot of questions answered. Especially ones pertaining to entering the start/end dates for respective programs.

    Well if you figure 2000+ people applying and around 250 receiving the scholarship the average GPA for acceptance has to be way up there! And I will for sure be applying, good luck to all!
