A limited number of Education Enhancement Bursaries are available to assist students in the College of Nursing to participate in worthwhile educational experiences. Activities may include, but are not limited to, professional conference registration or travel and clinical placements (rural or international).

Bursaries are made possible because of generous donors who recognize the importance of investing in nursing students.
