The College of Nursing provides thousands of dollars in scholarship opportunities and financial aid assistance to admitted students every year. Numerous endowed scholarships have been given by donors, friends, and alumni who are committed to the education of cougar nurses. Endowed scholarships from the college are separate, both in application and awarding, from Washington State University Scholarships. We encourage students to apply for a College of Nursing scholarship if you are currently enrolled as an undergraduate or graduate student at WSU College of Nursing and you have completed your Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA)
