About the Nursing School Scholarship Program

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. Our program is designed to promote nursing pre-licensure LPN, ADN, traditional BSN, RN to BSN completion, and graduate MSN education programs in Mississippi. Scholarships are a valuable tool for helping and we realize that nursing scholarships are essential in developing Mississippi’s nursing workforce.  

Our scholarship program assists in these efforts by enhancing the image of the nursing profession in Mississippi by motivating people to pursue nursing as a career. To date, we have partnered with various nursing programs within our state and have disbursed scholarship monies to them for nursing students that are residents of Mississippi. Partnering schools are responsible for awarding the scholarship funds to the eligible student applicant and work to ensure the funds are applied to the student's accounts (ONW does not directly award scholarships to students for this program). 

For more information about the program, contact us at (601) 957-6300.
