I am looking to start a NP program and I do not want to get loans. I hear scholarships are hard to come by for NPs. I've come across programs for loan repayments. I don't have any student loans - thank God. Does anyone have any resources for fellowships or scholarships for NP programs? Can the NP program be an online program or must it be a traditonal in-class program? Your help is always appreciated.
There are HRSA grants for NP students not tied to loan repayment. Only certain schools have been eligible, doubt online for profits are included but I'm sure both public and private research universities have received it. When I was in grad school (state university) I applied and was picked for HRSA's Advanced Education Nursing Traineeship grant. The university I attended had 10 slots a year for this particular grant. The grant requires a full-time course load. Grant amount varies by school, ours paid for half of my tuition. Ask schools about it.
