Scholarship Recipient Storyboard

" "

In today’s academic setting, fees for tuition, books, and materials can be overwhelming for the average nursing student. As costs for a nursing education continue to rise, future nurses and those seeking advanced degrees are looking for different ways to finance their education. ONW’s scholarship programs assist in these efforts by enhancing the image of the nursing profession in Mississippi by motivating people to pursue nursing as a career. 

ONW is working hard to lessen the stressors and help nursing students complete their education and successfully transition into the workforce. Every year ONW disburses scholarship monies to our schools of nursing. Each school of nursing then selects the scholarship recipients and awards the funds to the students (ONW does not directly award scholarships). Scholarships are a valuable tool for helping and ONW realizes that nursing scholarships are essential in developing Mississippi’s nursing workforce.
