Top 5 Creative Ways to Fund Your Education


1. Health Care Systems Fund Nursing Programs

Many of America’s healthcare systems are combating the drastic shortage of U.S. nurses by providing funding for new nursing programs.

Examples are the two largest in North Mississippi, the North Mississippi Medical Center (NMMC) and Baptist Memorial based in Memphis, Tenn. These medical centers will provide programs that make it possible to earn a bachelor of science degree in nursing and an accelerated master of science in nursing for students who do not have a baccalaureate degree.

Inquire with your local health care center about such programs or check out the top 5 hospitals that will pay for your education.

Little People of America offers scholarships for students who are short.

Tall Clubs International offers scholarships for those who are tall.
