Tuition Scholarships
Students applying the Instituto College's ADN or BNATP programs in need of financial assistance, may apply to Instituto's tuition scholarships.
 
ADN Tuition Scholarship
The Instituto College Scholarship was established for students pursuing an Associate Degree in Nursing to assist students as they embark on a career pathway in the health care profession. An individual is eligible to apply for a one-year scholarship for tuition-related expenses if they meet the established criteria. The scholarship amount that will be awarded is on an as needed basis, and is contingent upon the student meeting the established criteria mandated by the College. Instituto’s College Scholarship may be renewed for a second year if awarded students successfully complete all requirements of the ADN program during the first year. All scholarships (and scholarship renewals) are contingent on the availability of funding.
 
To be eligible for the Instituto College Scholarship, a student must (in conjunction with the admission requirements of Instituto College):
  • Commit to completing the Associate Degree in Nursing Program at Instituto College
  • Maintain a minimum grade of “B”
  • Have no more than one excused absence per semester
  • Demonstrate clear financial need
  • Exhibit qualities in line with Instituto values of:
    • Academic Excellence

  2. Student will successfully complete the Basic Nurses Assistant training program.
