MSP Marilyn & Allen Golden Scholarship

The Marilyn & Allen Golden Scholarship was established by Marilyn and Allen Golden to generously help disadvantaged students pursue their educational goals. This scholarship is reserved for students who have demonstrated economic, educational, or environmental disadvantage. Preference will be given to students enrolled in the Department of Nursing. If we do not have any applicants from the aforementioned program, EOP students who are pursuing a career in education/teaching will be considered.

Please note: Any change to your enrollment status resulting in less than full time enrollment for any term within the award year will result in a cancellation of your award.
