The Christ College of Nursing and Health Sciences Scholarships
The College offers a variety of scholarships to incoming and current students. Our scholarship awards can range anywhere from $250 to $10,000 per year.
Students must complete a scholarship application and we prefer a successfully processed FAFSA on file with the College as well but it is not required. Scholarship awards will vary based on available funds. Scholarship applications will be reviewed based on academic merit from your most recent college or high school cumulative grade point average. An essay is not required with your application but can be very helpful during the selection process. If a student wishes to submit an essay with the application we request that the essay is typed and limited to no more than two pages. Please note not all students who apply for scholarships are guaranteed to receive an award. Notification of awards will be emailed to students each June. Scholarship applications are available online below beginning in March 1st of each year.
