Scholarships

The Virginia Commonwealth University School of Nursing, through the generosity of our donors, is fortunate to have funds that provide financial support for undergraduate and graduate nursing students. The specificity of the fund criteria varies greatly in terms of academic standing, leadership qualities, and/or financial need. Currently, the School’s scholarship portfolio consists of over 90 scholarships, listed below.
