Scholarship application


The UW Tacoma Nursing program scholarships are awarded based on financial need and academic performance. If you have not already done so, submit the 2014-2015 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) using Federal School Code 003798. After submitting the FAFSA, you will receive a Student Aid Report (SAR) that includes an Expected Family Contribution (ECF) number.  You need the ECF number for the scholarship application.

Some Nursing scholarships require a personal essay. Completed online applications (and any additional required items) are due May 9, 2014. Late or incomplete applications will not be considered.
