Financial Aid and Scholarships

As a student in the DNP program, you are eligible to apply for financial aid. Please visit Student Financial Aid to learn more about the options available.

Scholarships offered through the College of Nursing are made available for each spring semester. Thanks in large part to generous private donors, the College of Nursing has a number of scholarships available. Continuing students are invited to submit the scholarship application to be considered for need-based and/or merit-based scholarships. These funds are limited and preference is given to full-time students who are continuously enrolled.

Doctoral students are also eligible to apply for funds through the Nursing Faculty Loan Program (NFLP). The NFLP is funded by the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) and is designed to increase the number of nursing faculty across the country. If you intend on working as a full-time faculty member at an accredited college or university after graduation, this program provides loan principle and interest forgiveness benefits of up to 85%. As a student enrolled in a doctoral program at the College of Nursing, you can apply for loans up to $35,500 annually for a maximum of five years. If you are a current student and interested in applying for these funds, please complete this application and return it to Megan Celik at
