So, it appears that every single BSN-DNP program I look at has scholarships
and or grants available for priority diversity applicants. One school I applied to was awarded over 2 million dollars by the HRSA for this purpose. But, I have yet to meet someone who has actually received this scholarship
. I submitted a second essay with my application highlighting my Diversity, yet did not even get asked a question regarding it... the criteria is males, ethnic backgrounds, underserved, first time college students in a family, religion.... I kinda feel like I am the picture of diversity:
I am a tri-racial (Polish, Kazak, Agentine,) male, single father of two, gay, Ashkenazi Jewish decent, I live in rural NH, my EFC is zero, first time college student in my entire family, shortages are HUGE in NH, I was adopted from Poland when I was 10 months old with my twin sister and twin brother (triplets,) my sister was killed on Sept 11, I am published, Salutorian, and my children are trans-racially adopted, which I subsequently vollunteered for my adoption agency in cleaning up Guatemala adoptions... I feel like a both of crayons... If I do not qualify, who does?
