Description: The Bachelor of Science Nursing Scholarship is available to California residents who have been accepted in a bachelor of science nursing program. To be eligible for this award, you must be a full- or part-time student (no less than six units) at an accredited California school, have a minimum 2.0 GPA, be a U.S. citizen or permanent resident, and agree to complete a two-year service obligation to practice in a medically underserved area of California as an RN providing direct patient care. Priority will be given to students who will be graduating within one to two years and individuals whose community background and commitment indicates the likelihood of long-term employment in a medically underserved area even after the service obligation has ended. Selection is based on work experience, financial need, career goals, community service, community background and academic performance.
