Nursing Scholarship Information FAQs

What is the deadline to submit the application?

Applications being mailed in must be postmarked before the deadline. If you are dropping off your application in person, it must be brought to the PMTC office by 4:00PM on the last business day prior to the deadline since the building is closed on the weekends. Applications are only accepted by mail or hand delivered, faxed or emailed applications will not be processed.

If starting school in the Spring, you must attach your school's Nursing Degree Checklist indicating the courses completed and courses currently enrolled in.

If the schools notification of acceptance is after our deadline, attach a note to your application stating the school’s application deadline and when they will notify.  Also attach a copy of the Nursing Degree Checklist indicating the courses completed and any courses currently enrolled in.

When will I know if I am selected?

All applicants will receive notification by mail. The notification letter will state whether the applicant is being selected for the scholarship or declined. Please note that our selection process can take some time, and that there is no set date as to when selections are finalized and notification is sent out. 

What if I am seeking a graduate degree?

We are pleased to now offer assistance to nursing students pursuing MSN, DNP, and PhD degrees. If you are planning to work as a nurse educator, certain non-rural obligation options are available. Please contact our office for details. 

Please note the Masters of Nursing Administration/Leadership track does not qualify for the State of Oklahoma Nursing Student Assistance Program.

How long is the required service obligation?

The nurse is obligated to practice nursing at the degree level for which assistance was received. For example, if you receive assistance while earning an ADN you cannot fulfill your obligation working as an LPN.

Obligations must be fulfilled by working full-time at a qualifying facility, one year for each academic year of financial assistance received. The minimum obligation is one year.

What is the matching scholarship?

The matching scholarship is an excellent opportunity for the nursing student.  The matching applicant has the potential to receive a larger scholarship amount than a non-matching applicant. Remember, the service obligation will be fulfilled with the sponsoring institution after training and licensing.

The applicant will find and secure a health institution to sponsor them.  Make sure it is somewhere you want and are willing to work once you are out of school.  The service obligation will be with the sponsoring institution. Individuals to speak with are the Nurse Recruiter or Nurse Education Director, Director of Nurses, or the Administrator.
