Many regions of the country are currently experiencing critical shortages in licensed healthcare personnel. Nurses, nurse practitioners, and primary care physicians are all in great demand across the country. Grant programs, supported by both public and private sources, have been put into place to encourage students to pursue careers in the healthcare industry. Many of these grants are award-for-service programs, and recipients will be required to serve a predetermined time of service in a high need medical facility, or under-served urban or rural community.
Overview: As part of the HIE Help Center’s commitment to increasing awareness and understanding of preventable injuries like hypoxic-ischemic encephalopathy (HIE), they are pleased to announce the HIE Help Center Scholarship. A scholarship for financial assistance in the amount of $1,000 will be awarded each year to an undergraduate or graduate student who is helping people impacted by injuries like HIE.
That depends on the scholarship. The money might go directly to your college, where it will be applied to any tuition, fees, or other amounts you owe, and then any leftover funds given to you. Or it might be sent directly to you in a check. The scholarship provider should tell you what to expect when it informs you that you’ve been awarded the scholarship. If not, make sure to ask.
Applicant must be a current employee who is enrolled in a nursing or allied health (e.g. radiology technology, respiratory therapy, medical technology, physical therapy, physical therapy assistant, occupational therapy, or physician assistant) undergraduate program or a non-employee who is enrolled in a nursing program leading to a B.S.N. or higher. Minimum 2.5 GPA, two letters of recommendation, transcript, and letter of acceptance/good standing required. Award requires a work commitment at Suburban Hospital in Bethesda, MD, upon completion of degree program.
The Susan G. Komen Foundation is one of the best known advocates for the treatment and prevention of breast cancer. The foundation sponsors both grants and scholarships for students who have lost a parent to breast cancer. Awards of up to $10,000 are available, and are decided on a combination of scholastic achievement, community service and financial need.
Scholarships generally come in three varieties: one-time, renewable, or renewable with stipulations. One-time awards are granted only once, while renewable scholarships are granted each year. Some are dispensed automatically each year after the initial award but most renewable awards call for the recipient to reapply or provide transcripts and progress reports to ensure they are still meeting the guidelines set by the scholarship committee. If you were awarded for your stellar grades or athletic achievement, a low GPA or nonparticipation on a university team could discontinue your award so check with your scholarship provider to determine what is required for continued funding.
This grant requires each applicant to be an undergraduate student who has not yet earned a bachelor's degree, and a United States citizen or an eligible non-citizen (usually, a permanent resident). In addition, the applicant must have a high school diploma or a GED or be able to demonstrate the ability to benefit from the program. Applicants must also sign a statement certifying that they will use the aid only for education-related purposes, that they are not currently in default for any federal student loans, and that they owe no refund for any federal education grants.
Some college grant programs are open to all students regardless of background or field of study. These are considered General Grants, and typically are decided according to financial need and academic performance. A great number of college grants, however, are designed to target specific portions of the population or students pursuing particular degrees or career paths. These can be broken down into the following categories.
College grants are primarily awards of free money, that do not require any repayment on the part of the recipient. They can be directed toward specific educational expenses, specific types of students, or general purpose. Unlike scholarships, which are typically awarded on the basis of academic achievement or athletic, artistic or extracurricular performance, grants are awarded according to financial need. This is not to say that academic merit will not be considered, only that financial need is given greater weight in the final decision making process.

I am a African American who is desperate for money right now, working 2 part time jobs barely getting any rest, nor sleep. I feel exhausted and believe I may have developed sleep apnea, just a little. with the money I earn, im not only giving it banks or college, im also supporting my mother, a single parent over a total of 4 children. luckily I am the first to go through college and with potential to be somebody. Im studying in law and after a little half than a decade, I’m hope to gain a great paying job so I can pay off the hundreds of thousands of dollars to the bank that I will soon owe. I don’t want to end my graduation with an overload of stress trying to bounce back into an average life. Please help and support me on this, I need the money just as much as everybody else does. Please, im only 17, graduated from high school with a 3.7 and I shouldn’t be going through all of this. It will mean the world to me. I promise I will spend it all on school and not use it for pleasure like many other ignorant people do. I want an opportunity in life and im personally asking for ur help, if another individual needs it more then help her/him I’ll find another way to make that A lot easier or more possible. thank you!
Students coming from low-income families already face increased challenges that hinder their ability to receive a higher education. The Pell Grant addresses one of the issues by making college accessible to students that may need the financial assistance. It has been shown to increase the college enrollment of students coming from lower and moderate-income families. It can also reduce the chances of them dropping out.
Beyond using these initial, broad categories to narrow your search, you can search by sub-categories. Within “Scholarships by Major,” for example, you can looks at list of scholarships by business, computer science, education, engineering, and other major-specific categories.
