The West Virginia Nursing Scholarship Program accepts applications between April 15 through June 1 each year and provides scholarships to students meeting all eligibility requirements for the subsequent academic year. After applications are received, the applicant’s institution must verify that the applicant is in good academic standing and meets the GPA requirements before the applicant may receive an award.

Awards are made through a competitive process. Complete application materials must be made by the application deadline.
