External Scholarship Opportunities

In an effort to provide more information on External Scholarship Opportunities that may be available to you, we have provided a list of scholarship search engines that you can utilize to try to subsidize your cost of attendance.

External Scholarships refers to funds that are applied for and awarded by agencies outside of the College. The Financial Aid Office at the college has no part in the application or selection processes for these types of awards. As always, it’s important to remember that an application does not guarantee that you will receive a scholarship. However, the only way you eliminate yourself from consideration is by choosing not
to apply.

Note: If you do receive aid from any outside sources, you must contact the Financial Aid Office at The Christ College of Nursing and Health Sciences so that we may adjust your financial aid package if needed. If you neglect to contact the Financial Aid Office, you are in danger of compromising or losing your scholarships or grants.
