Keep your grades up

This scholarship program is need-based as well as merit. Therefore only those with a GPA of 3.3 or higher have better chances of winning. So work hard on keeping your grades up and maintaining your GPA. Grades will be an indicator of how dedicated and serious you are.


Emphasize your work experience and community service

In the application, you must describe and provide details about your work experience and community service. Emphasize your work experience and community service by showing the influence you had in your workplace or community because your accomplishments outside of the classroom will help you make a good impression on the scholarship judges.


Demonstrate your unique abilities

You will have the opportunity to talk about yourself, your hobbies, your ambitions, and why you picked nursing as a profession in the essay. Discuss how your life experiences, employment, and community service have shaped you. Describe how you became interested in medicine, specifically nursing. This will give them a feel of who you are beyond what is shown on your application.


Have your application reviewed

Competition for this scholarship will be fierce, and the application process will require you to write extensively in your own words. Asking someone else to proofread your application before submitting it will help to ensure that your application is not rejected because of avoidable mistakes such as typos, grammatical errors, or misspelled words.
