The State Nursing Scholarship and Living Expenses Grant Program has been consolidated into the Workforce Shortage Student Assistance Grant Program. Individuals who have received the State Nursing Scholarship in prior years will continue to receive their awards as long as they remain eligible. Award amounts will remain the same and the service obligation must be served.
