    • The scholarship requires paid membership in an organization (with certain exceptions for reputable trade organizations and others)

    • The scholarship or scholarship providing organization seem untrustworthy
    • There is no evidence the scholarship was previously awarded
    • The scholarship has not been awarded in the past 12 months

    ** Lead generation scholarships will require students to sign up for an app or website and require minimal (if any) application requirements.
    ***Idea harvesting scholarships will require students to submit blog posts or other materials that companies may use for marketing purposes.

    Scholarship Overview

    Are you a Kentucky resident who has been accepted into and is enrolled in a program of nursing (prelicensure (LPN, RN, BSN), BSN completion, or graduate or certificate program)? Further, will you be enrolled in an academic term that begins after August of the application year and will be able to complete a minimum of 9 credit hours for graduate programs or 12 credit hours for prelicensure or BSN completion programs? If so, consider applying for the Kentucky Nursing Incentive Scholarship Fund! Each year, the scholarship awards $3,000 to multiple eligible aspiring nurses from Kentucky. Bear in mind that, after graduation from the program of nursing, recipients must work full-time (part-time work is prorated) in Kentucky as a nurse for one year for each academic year funded. If this sounds like a good opportunity for you, we encourage you to apply! Keep on reading to learn more.
