Nursing Education Forgivable Loan - BSN

Description

Applicant must currently be not in default or delinquent on any federal, state, or local educational loan. NELB is first and foremost a loan. The loan can be forgiven (discharged) on the basis of one academic year of full-time teaching in an accredited school of nursing in Mississippi in exchange for one year of loan received OR one year of service in professional nursing in exchange for one year of loan received. For those that receive prorated funding over three (3) calendar years, two (2) years of service are required. Application note: New applicants and some renewal applicants with a break in enrollment will be required to submit two forms of residency documentation (example: FAFSA, MS driver's license, state tax return, etc.). Application dates: October 1- March 31. Document deadline: April 30, except for the Letter of Acceptance, which may be submitted through June 30. Awards are made on a first-come, first-served basis, as funding is available. However, priority is given to eligible renewal applicants. The NELB awards up to $4,000 per academic year, not to exceed two (2) calendar years or $8,000. Part-time students are eligible to receive a maximum of $8,000 prorated over three (3) calendar years.
