The purpose of the Grant is to provide student financial assistance grants to nursing students that are admitted and enrolled in the expanded traditional GVSU nursing program, thereby increasing the pipeline of nurses in the West Michigan community and nurses employed at BHSH.
Pine Rest Academy for Nursing Students is partnering with Grand Valley State University to provide up to $10,000 in tuition assistance per semester (up to $40,000 total) for each student interested in pursuing an Accelerated Second Degree BSN, and has been accepted into the academy. In return, the student agrees to work at Pine Rest during nursing school and for two years after being licensed by the State of Michigan.

The Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) Nurse Corps Scholarship Program provides financial support to students enrolled in nursing degree programs in exchange for a commitment to serve in high-need areas across the country.
This financial fund assists undergraduate and graduate nursing students with non-tuition-related expenses such as books, materials, and travel expenses for clinical placements so they can focus on successfully completing their nursing degree.
You can submit a request for yourself or in support of a GVSU nursing student. The application requires the support of a KCON faculty member, who will be contacted to provide a written recommendation.

GVSU remains committed to supporting you because of the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic and is here to help you in times of financial need. We understand that every student's situation is different, so we have provided you with several different options to review in the event of financial hardship. From the generosity of the GVSU community and our partners, we have been able to provide institutional grants to those who have faced economic hardship. Financial hardship funds are available to help students meet their basic needs, and help cover educational costs (such as housing, food, and textbooks) that a student could not otherwise pay out of pocket.
Replenish, the university's food pantry and food resource for students, provides food and personal care items for students who face financial struggles that affect their food access.
