College of Nursing Scholarships

WSU College of Nursing provides more than $280,000 in scholarships to nursing students every year. Numerous scholarships have been given by donors, friends, and alumni who are committed to the education of Cougar nurses. You must be enrolled as an undergraduate or graduate student at WSU College of Nursing to be eligible to apply. We ask that you complete your Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) as part of the process. Awards are granted for fall and spring semesters only.

Please note: there are new FAFSA deadlines for the 2017/2018 academic year:

The 2017/2018 FAFSA application will open October 1, 2016. All transfer students must submit their application by January 31, 2017. If you are a continuing WSU student, you must submit your application by November 30, 2016.
