Nursing students may apply for financial help through the Floyd Nursing Scholarship Program. Details regarding applications for a 2019 deadline will be posted in late 2018. The deadline for submitting a scholarship application is mid-February.
Who may apply:
- RN or BSN students not affiliated with Floyd Medical Center or Polk Medical Center
- PRN nurses affiliated with Floyd Medical Center, Polk Medical Center or any other organization
In 2018, the scholarship offered $1,500 per semester for RN and BSN degrees, up to $3,000 per year.
Applications are reviewed and interviews are conducted by the scholarship committee. Scholarship finalists will be contacted by phone for an interview.
If awarded a scholarship, students are required to sign a contract agreeing to work for Floyd for a specific amount of time after graduation or pay back the scholarship upon graduation. Academic records will be evaluated by Floyd after completion of each semester to ensure scholarship students are maintaining at least a B average.
