Financial Aid

What types of financial aid are available?

Scholarships  The link to the UNMC scholarship application is sent to you via email following your acceptance to the College of Nursing. The deadline to apply is April 1st or within 30 days after acceptance if accepted after April 1st. One application is used for all scholarship awards made by the College of Nursing. Limited scholarship money is available for academic merit, financial need, and specific donor criteria. Scholarships are awarded annually and are not guaranteed for following years. You are strongly encouraged to apply each year. Read about the Northeast Nebraska Scholarship.

Grants  To be considered for grant aid, students must complete the "Free Application for Federal Student Aid" (FAFSA). Grants are based on financial need and do not have to be repaid.
