Areas to Support

General Scholarship

Allen College has a lasting reputation for producing quality nurses and healthcare professionals. We’re proud to be able to provide scholarship assistance to deserving students thanks to funding provided by organizations, institutional funds and private donors. During the 2021-2022 academic year, more than $1 million in scholarship awards was distributed - the most ever! Currently, Allen College projects a decline in funds available for scholarships coupled with an increased financial need for our students. Your help is needed to bridge the gap for scholarship support this year!

You Matter Award

In 2022 the “You Matter Award” was created to provide immediate assistance to reduce some student financial barriers. Oftentimes, students struggle to cover their costs more than other semesters due to required fees and course requirements. Being able to provide this type of help for students really speaks to the college’s culture and as the name of the award states, lets our students know they matter. The "You Matter Award" could range anywhere between $500 and $2,000.

Support at every level makes a difference. Are you ready to go #allinforallen?
