Kim, I just keep thinking of you :) This one is specifically for nursing planning to go on to teaching:

http://www.nsna.org/foundation/scholarships/pon_fellowship.asp

The link didn't work for me, but if you go directly to the nsna site, then look at the links on the left side under foundation/scholarships, then scholarships it's there, along with another undergraduate scholarship.

And for good measure I'll include the basic text here:

Interesting - you have to be going to school in the zip code you plan to teach in! That leaves me out as school is in Wisconsin and I'm in California!

: (

Thanks for the info, though. I did apply for the first one you mentioned. Should know after October 31st.

Hi, it's your scholarship queen here:

This one's a bit specific, but considering the incidence of breast cancer out there, it's still a pretty big pool. And hey, up to 10K/year for 4 years is nothing to sneeze at!

Sorry for the US-centric nature of these posts, but it's what comes my way.

The Susan G. Komen for the Cure College Scholarship Award Program is offering college scholarships to students who cannot financially afford to attend college due to the impact of losing a parent to breast cancer. Scholarships awarded are for up to $10,000 a year over a four-year period. The program assists young adults in their academic pursuits.


Applicant Qualifications


*Have lost a parent to breast cancer.
*Be a high school graduate, a high school student who will
graduate by June 2008, or have received the equivalent of a high school diploma. Current college students are eligible.
*Plan to attend a state-supported college or university in the
state where they permanently reside.
*Have a college GPA of 2.8 on a 4.0 scale (if already attending
college).
*Be no older than 25 years old by June 2008.
*Be a U.S. citizen, or documented permanent resident of the U.S.
*Never at any time have been subject to any disciplinary action
by any institution or entity, including, but not limited to, any
educational or law enforcement agency.


Amount

Up to $10,000 a year.


Term Four years


Important Deadlines

The 2008 Komen College Scholarship is now available online! The deadline for submission is February 1, 2008.

My problem is that there is no way I will ever make the cut based on financial need.

I have a good job as an RN with $1800 dollars a year reimbursement from my job.

As much as I'd like to apply, I keep thinking there are students more needy.

Now, if they based it on essays or scholarship and not financial need, I might have a chance.
