Scholarships

In its commitment to Nursing Education, Sharon Regional provides scholarships to employees interested in pursuing a career in nursing. All scholarships are a one-time financial gift.

Financial Aid

A wide variety of programs are available to assist students with educational costs. The School of Nursing participates in the Federal Pell Grant and Stafford Loan programs. Students are eligible for state grants according to state of residence.

All students who seek financial aid must complete the application for federal and state grants each year in order to determine financial need.

In addition to the various federal and state programs, a series of private scholarships are available from various sources. Students are encouraged to be aware that although financial aid is available and may be a considerable source of help, it should by no means be relied upon to cover the entire cost of attending nursing school.

Written financial aid information is available upon request and individual counseling can be arranged by appointment with the Financial Aid Office at 724-983-3988.
