Nursing Scholarships and Loans

Stabler Nursing Scholarship

The Stabler Nursing Scholarship has been established by the Stabler Foundation as a “debt of conscience” in that the student does pledge to return any funds received from this scholarship to Messiah University in a period of time not normally exceeding 15 years. However, it is not a loan, and would not usually obligate the recipient to return more than the amount that was received.  The Stabler Nursing Scholarship is not a need-based form of financial aid, so any Nursing major can apply.  Awards have been as high as $5,000 in prior years, but funds are limited and will be awarded on a first come, first served basis until they are exhausted. Please email (finaid@messiah.edu) or call (717-691-6007) the Financial Aid Office to discuss your potential eligibility and to request an application.  Also, be sure that you indicate the amount that you would like ( up to $5,000 ) when submitting the application.

There is a foundation that donates money for this each year.  They decide the criteria for receipt.  The Financial Aid Office picks the students who meet the criteria.  A student cannot apply directly for this scholarship.

Nursing Education Endowed Scholarship Fund
