The College of Nursing is very fortunate to have numerous alumni and friends who invest in the education of our nursing students by establishing scholarships. The College of Nursing faculty and staff select students who meet the criteria for the scholarships in the fall and again in the spring. The students are informed through the University of Iowa College of Nursing through the Student Services Listserv each fall and spring when the application process for scholarships is open. For all of the scholarships that have financial need as a criterion, the College of Nursing requires a FAFSA to be completed.
We are very grateful to have such loyal alumni and friends who have chosen to give back to the University of Iowa College of Nursing.
