I had a quick question regarding the Illinois Department of Public Health Nursing Education Scholarship. If you have been a part of this before, what is the selection criteria for this? I have an EFC of 0 and am a senior Nursing student with a 3.6 cumulative GPA. Also, what has been your experience with this scholarship? I really hope I get it because this will substantially help me finish out my last year of school. Any input is appreciated. Thank you!
You should call the number, the representative was really nice and informative. With my application, I wrote a personal letter with my application, informing them that the school is private and currently student aid is not offered, and i'm paying cash out of my pocket which affects my household etc. etc. (which they have all of that information, but i needed to emphasize this), as soon as i sent my application like 3 days later I received confirmation of IDPH receiving it. But upon doing research the top two things they are looking at are EFC number and GPA. Also its all depending upon how much the state gives the scholarship program too. I'm enrolled in a LPN program, so only 10 percent of the funding goes to LPN, and 90 percent of the funding goes to RN applicants. From my understanding not many LPN students applied, but who knows, i'm just keeping my fingers crossed
