Scholarships

The School of Nursing sets aside a limited amount of merit-based funds for students who demonstrate strong academic ability, leadership skills, outstanding community service, and other personal strengths and accomplishments.  These merit awards are granted for achievement, not financial need. With the exception of the Fuld Fellowship in Patient Care Quality and Safety, there is no separate application to apply for a scholarship. Each student is considered upon applying for admission. Scholarships range from $7,500 to full tuition and are awarded to students who are admitted and enrolling full-time in an MSN or DNP programs. Students who are awarded a scholarship must be enrolled full time and remain a student in good standing to receive the scholarship.  The amount awarded will be equally divided over program: a portion will be applied to the student’s financial aid award each semester he/she is enrolled full time. Examples of scholarships offered by the School of Nursing are included below.

  • Yellow Ribbon
    The program is an expansion of the Post-9/11 Veterans Education Assistance Act--the most generous veterans benefit for higher education since the WWII GI Bill. The act provides payment for tuition and fees, a housing allowance, and a stipend for books and supplies to eligible veterans who have served on active military duty since September 11, 2001. The maximum tuition and fees benefit available under the law is capped at the level of the in-state charges at the most expensive public institution in that state. Institutions that charge higher tuition may elect to enter into an agreement with the Veterans Administration to fund up to 50 percent of the tuition and fee costs that exceed the state cap. The federal government then matches these institutional contributions dollar-for-dollar. The Johns Hopkins School of Nursing offers $5,000 for up to 10 eligible veterans entering the masters or doctoral programs.
