The American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) granted $5,000,000 to Nebraska DHHS to distribute in the form of scholarships to eligible Nebraska nursing students in approved nursing programs up to $5,000/semester or $3,500/quarter.  This scholarship will fulfill two primary goals: to reduce barriers to entry in the nursing field and to grow Nebraska's public health workforce.  Upon completion of their nursing programs, these students will be obligated to practice nursing in Nebraska for a minimum of two years.  Each of these students will play a vital supporting role in rebuilding Nebraska's public health infrastructure and will advance the state's recovery from COVID-induced nursing shortages.

Any Nebraska resident currently enrolled or intending to enroll in a Nebraskan LPN, ADN, accelerated BSN, or traditional BSN program is eligible to apply.  These scholarships will be distributed on a first-come, first-served basis to qualified applicants.  Please complete the application below to determine your eligibility.  You will enter your personal information, demographic information, and nursing program information.  You will also be required to attach proof of enrollment as well as complete the W9/ACH Banking Enrollment form.  See for information about eligibility, the scholarship terms, and the disbursement process.
