scholarships/grants for men?
- 0May 8, '05 by roxburinHello, I know in some fields (science, mathematics for example) there are many grants and/or scholarships geared specifically towards getting women into those mostly men dominated fields. Has anyone heard of anything out there focused on getting men into nursing? Any good sources, grants and/or scholarships available? My thanks in advance -Rox-

Just something else to consider.Hello, I know in some fields (science, mathematics for example) there are many grants and/or scholarships geared specifically towards getting women into those mostly men dominated fields.

That's where the state gives you money to go to school and you promise to work in this state as an RN for one year for each year that they finance for you. The school I am attending admits people on a point system. The more classes you have completed the more points you get, the better your chances. The grant is only available for full time enrollees. Since all of my pre-req's but one are finished, I am ineligible since I will be less than 12 hours enrolled in the fall. I am therefore having to finance all of my ADN out of pocket.
You might check on this issue with the state you live in and try to find a way around that if it is an option. Or you could check with the Financial aid office at your school to see what other scholarships or grants they work with and can help you to apply for. In my experience I have never seen any of them that are gender specific except those that are specific to females.
Some employers will do tuition re-imbursement if what you are getting will help you to advance within their system as well. You can try that option depending on where you work.
Hope some of this was helpful.
- 0Aug 7, '05 by fatum22-CNAHi there! I too am researching the same thing. I have my costs covered for the fall and spring from my state( NY) and from the fed. pell grant. I also know many hospitals will help w/ costs by promise of working for them the amount of years they gave you money.Try going to grants.gov this is a site w/ every grant there is from the govt. The only problem it is very time consuming there are thous. and thous. of them. The bureau of health/ human services has a great scholarship that will even give you 1137 dollars a month, there are only a couple hundred of these and 1,000s of apps. you also need a (0) EFC or forget it. I hope this helps a little bit Please if you find anything I could use feel free to drop me a line. Joe
