Nursing Student Scholarships Support Healthier Communities

The Independent College Fund of New Jersey (ICFNJ) has posted a scholarship opportunity funded by Partners for Health.

Based on the demand for nurses and the high cost to attend nursing school, Partners for Health is expanding its Nursing Scholarship awards program to 14 scholarships of $7,500 each in 2022 and 2023. To be consistent with our focus on health equity, scholarship recipients must be students with a demonstrated financial need, and students vulnerable to disruption or discontinuation of pursuing a college degree because of discrimination or exclusion due to the social, economic, educational, and/or cultural dimensions of their lives.

Junior and senior nursing students attending Bloomfield College, Caldwell University, Montclair State University and Seton Hall University can apply for this competitive scholarship through ICFNJ at

Applications will be accepted through September 31, 2022.

“Partners for Health is proud to support nursing students with these scholarships. Nurses who work in schools, health departments and in many other settings are vital partners in our efforts to make the communities we serve healthier, better places to live,” said Pam Scott, Executive Director of the Foundation.


ICFNJ was founded in 1953 as a cooperative involving business and academic leaders to broaden support for private higher education in New Jersey. Today, ICFNJ continues the tradition of empowering students to realize their goals by strengthening New Jersey’s independent colleges and universities with support for strategic investments in innovative programs, student scholarships and educational advancement. Through these efforts, ICFNJ has raised and contributed close to $72 million providing opportunities for its member institutions to continuously enhance program quality, to increase accessibility and affordability; and thus fulfill their respective missions.
