The Michigan Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs (LARA) annually distributes funds to eligible schools that apply for funding. Students in LPN, ADN, and BSN pre-licensure programs; RN to BSN completion, and MSN nursing education programs are eligible to receive funds and are selected by their school’s financial aid office according to their eligibility criteria. The amount of award is determined by the school. Students that receive awards agree to practice within the state of Michigan. How to Apply/Contact: Contact your nursing program dean or the financial aid office at the Michigan school you plan to attend for information about being considered for a Michigan Nursing Scholarship. The school must submit their notice of intent to award students scholarships and the corresponding student applications to the LARA by June 30 of each year.
