Since the inception of the program, General Mills has invested more than $1,000,000 to underwrite this initiative.

The U.S. Health and Human Services Agency's HRSA Nursing Scholarship Program is taking applications until May 8, and if you're a student with financial need who's enrolled in or accepted to a nursing program, it could pay off in a big way. The scholarship covers full tuition and provides textbook and living expense stipends. Last year, nearly 400 applicants benefited from the program. 

The only catch: If you're chosen as a recipient, you also commit to working for a minimum of two years after graduation at what HHS calls a "critical shortage facility," which includes public hospitals, rural health clinics, hospice providers, and other institutions that face a shortage of qualified nurses. Check out all the fine print before you apply, but don't let it dissuade you from a tremendous opportunity.

Nurses of Tomorrow Scholarship is providing three $1,000 awards to qualified nursing students with financial need. The program, funded by Medical Solutions and their Traveling Nurses, asks applicants to answer the question, "How would you define a Nurse?"

If you have a 2.75 or higher GPA, financial need, and a good community service background, head over and submit your application. The program kicks off during National Nurses Week and has a June 5 deadline.
