Pre-nursing students will find information about scholarships and loans through Towson University's Financial Aid Office. Typically scholarships are available for current Towson nursing students in the junior or senior level.
From time to time organizations send announcements and applications for scholarships directly to the Department of Nursing. Students are encouraged to read the scholarship bulletin board in Linthicum Hall, third floor and visit the Nursing Blackboard site for information about available scholarships.
Students are also encouraged to contact area hospitals for scholarship information. Many area hospitals provide scholarships to students currently enrolled in the nursing major. Most require that the student be employed by the hospital upon graduation.
The Veterans Administration, the U.S. Public Health Service, and the armed services have scholarship programs available for students interested in working at those agencies upon graduation. Some of these scholarships may be competitive.
