USA: The BrainTrack Nursing Scholarship 2010/2011

The BrainTrack Scholarship for Nursing helps current students pay for their education. Entrants must respond to essay questions that are geared toward helping people evaluate nursing as a potential career path. BrainTrack will publish those essays which prove most helpful to future students.

The scholarship is open to students with at least one semester of credits towards graduation with an appropriate degree in nursing. One student award of $1,000 for the best entry and one of $500 for the second best entry is planned for each of two semesters, on an annual basis. Entry deadlines are November 1 and March 1, with awards payable towards the student's current or following semester.

Winners will be selected based on the creativity, focus, overall thoughtfulness, accuracy, and practical value of their responses to essay questions. Determination of winners will be undertaken by a committee that includes independent judges familiar with nursing as well as BrainTrack staff.
