FON Scholarships

Scholarship Sponsored by Friends of Nursing

Value: $2,500
Awards Available: 27
Deadline: Oct 31, 2021

Since 1981 we have awarded more than $1 million in nursing student scholarships.

Founded in 1981 the Friends of Nursing, a nonprofit 501c(3) organization, is dedicated to advancing professional nursing through scholarship support of baccalaureate and higher degree nursing students. FON has no paid staff and accomplishes its work entirely though the efforts of its members, donors and other supportive volunteers. Funds for the scholarship awards each year are raised through membership dues, various ticketed events, the generosity of members and donors, and investments.


1) Students must be enrolled in a baccalaureate or higher degree program at participating Colorado Schools of Nursing:

A) Adams State University - Alamosa

B) Colorado Christian University

C) Colorado Mesa University - Grand Junction

D) Colorado State University - Pueblo

E) CU Colorado Springs Helen and Arthur E. Johnson Beth-El College of Nursing and Health Sciences

F) Metropolitan State University of Denver

G) Regis University/Loretto Heights School of Nursing - Denver

H) Univ. of Colorado, College of Nursing

I) University of Northern Colorado, School of Nursing - Greeley

Friends of Nursing will give preference to students who are planning to practice in Colorado.

2) Students must have attained Junior or Senior status in an undergraduate program or be enrolled in a graduate program in nursing. e.g. MS/MSN, DNP, PhD.

3) Students must have a 3.0 or higher GPA.

4) Students must create an account on this website with their email address as Username and Password of their choosing. The purpose of the account is to allow you to work on the forms on your own schedule. The account is password protected ensuring confidentially and security. Students must complete the application forms online and submit the application electronically by the deadline above. (Paper applications will not be accepted for the Friends of Nursing Scholarship.)

5) Students can print out the FON online application form and submit the standard application to Alpha Kappa Chapter-at-Large, Sigma Theta Tau (STTI) which also awards scholarships. Information on where to access eligibility requirements and addresses to send forms for these scholarships can be found on the Colorado Collaborative Scholarship Tab on this website.
