We’re thrilled to announce our expansion to support 25 of the top nursing schools in America, and to highlight our support for 188 North American universities with top-notch nursing degree programs! To celebrate, we’re launching the MPOWER Nursing Scholarship Program.
In keeping with MPOWER’s commitment to empower high-potential global citizens to realize their educational aspirations and improve the quality of life in emerging markets, this scholarship program will focus on students with the greatest potential to effect positive social change through nursing, especially by improving nursing services to underserved and vulnerable populations.
We're offering one $5,000 scholarship, one $2,000 scholarship, and one $1,000 scholarship for international students in the U.S. and Canada who demonstrate the potential to effect positive social change through nursing!
The student must:
-Be 18 years or older
-Be enrolled or accepted to study full-time in a bachelor’s, master’s, or doctorate-level nursing program at one of the universities MPOWER supports.
