Undergraduate Scholarships

Healthy Aging Undergraduate Nursing Scholarship Information

Undergraduate scholarships encourage junior and senior baccalaureate nursing students to carry out a research project in the field of aging. Under the mentorship of a nursing faculty member, students are encouraged to examine questions of direct relevance to pre-existing studies or develop their own research projects and complete the project over two quarters. A limited number of scholarships, supported by our community partners, may be available for specific projects focused on designated areas of gerontological nursing. The award amount is $2,000.

Other Credit

If you are awarded a scholarship, you may obtain academic credit for NMETH 499 (Undergraduate Research/Independent Study) with your faculty advisor.
