Centra Foundation Scholarship
Through the generous gifts of multiple donors, the Centra Foundation offers scholarship funding to eligible PN, ADN, and RN-BSN students. Applicants must have successfully completed the first semester in their current program and be enrolled at least half-time at Centra College (six credit hours or more). The application is required for first-time, eligible applicants for their current program and only one application is needed per program for eligible applicants. The Centra Foundation Scholarship Application is made available on Moodle to current students prior to the start of each semester.
Outside Scholarships are awarded by organizations or institutions outside of Centra College. Students are encouraged to review each scholarship opportunity carefully and notify the Financial Aid Office if approved for a scholarship. When searching for scholarships, please keep in mind that scholarship applications should be free and services that charge either to search for scholarships or to submit applications may be scams. Please see below for a list of approved scholarship resources.
