The Great 100 Nurses of North Carolina not only recognizes excellence in nursing, but also is proud to include a scholarship program to support nursing education. As a component of our mission, the Great 100 Nurses of North Carolina supports nursing students across the state with scholarship monies to assist with preparing future nurses. With the funds approved by the Great 100 Board of Directors, the Great 100 Nurses of North Carolina Alumni Association, and our generous contributors, up to 26 scholarships totaling $50,000 is awarded to North Carolina nursing students each year.
Each year nursing schools across the state of North Carolina are randomly selected as scholarship recipients. The schools, then in turn, select a student based on criteria established by the Great 100 Board of Directors. The faculty and staff at each nursing school select the student they believe is the most deserving of the scholarship.
