Helene Fuld Health Trust Scholarship

For Second Degree BSN Applicants

The Helene Fuld Health Trust is the nation’s largest funder devoted exclusively to nursing students and nursing education. The UCF College of Nursing received funding in 2015 to support Second Degree BSN students. For Summer 2017, the college will award four full-tuition scholarships in the amount of $14,000 and 11 half-tuition scholarships in the amount of $6,840 (scholarships do not include the cost of books, lab supplies, or room and board). For Summer 2018, the college will also award more than $130,000 to students admitted to the Second Degree BSN program. An endowment has also been set up to continue scholarship funding to admitted students beyond Summer 2018.

Summer 2017 Scholarship Details

  • Four students will be awarded a scholarship of $14,000.
    • Scholarships will be dispersed in four payments of $3,500 awarded over the course of the program. This will cover the cost of in-state tuition and fees for the program.
