School of Nursing


Holy Name Medical Center Sister Claire Tynan School of Nursing has a limited amount of scholarship funds available to award eligible students.

Scholarships are awarded for the Fall and Winter semesters each year. Award amounts will vary based on the availability of scholarship funds and the number of students who apply and meet scholarship eligibility requirements. The School of Nursing Scholarship Committee will review all applications for scholarship eligibility. Students will be notified by email of the scholarship award and amount. Awards are applied to the current semester's balance; if there is no current balance, the award is applied to the next semester's tuition and fees.

Scholarship Eligibility Criteria

  1. The student must file the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) and demonstrate financial need.
  2. The student must have a minimum total GPA of 2.0 or higher and be actively enrolled in a nursing course and be in good academic standing.
  3. The student must meet the requirements designated by the specific Scholarship Donor. All scholarships require a thank you letter addressed to the donor awarding the scholarship.
  4. The scholarship awards are limited by the award funds available, the amount awarded, and the number of students meeting the above criteria. Due to restrictions, if the applications received exceed the funds available, scholarship amounts will be awarded based on:
    • Financial need (highest to lowest)
    • GPA (highest to lowest)
  5. Students are required to complete and submit the application each semester.
    • Fall and Winter, by the published deadlines (September 13 for the Fall semester, February 14 for the Winter semester). Late applications will not be accepted.
  6. Submit application to the School of Nursing Financial Aid officer. Students will be notified of award by email.

School of Nursing scholarship applications are available in the Financial Aid Office or on the Moodle LMS.
