Regis College is pleased to announce a new partnership with the Massachusetts Nurses Association (MNA) that offers one full undergraduate scholarship for a dependent of a nurse who passed away from COVID-19, as well as two $5,000 scholarships for a single parent wishing to pursue a masters in nursing or a second bachelor’s degree in nursing. Additionally, discounted tuition for Regis nursing programs will be available to MNA members and their immediate families.
“The experiences that many people have endured during this health crisis have been traumatic,” said Regis College President Antoinette Hays, PhD, RN. “I am proud that Regis is offering a full tuition scholarship to a deserving dependent of a frontline worker who sacrificed their life to care for others.”
The full four-year undergraduate scholarship is for a child or dependent of a frontline worker who was an active MNA member and passed away from COVID-19. Eligible students must apply during the early action period prior to Nov. 15, 2020, for admittance as a first-year student in fall 2021 and must pursue a degree in nursing or health sciences.
“This collaboration will offer our members and members of their immediate families the unique opportunity to pursue continuing education while remaining actively engaged in the nursing and healthcare workforce,” said Judith Pare, PhD, RN, Director of the Division of Nursing Education for the Massachusetts Nurses Association. “During this unprecedented health care emergency our collaboration with Regis will offer hope and help for nurses who are looking for creative opportunities to fulfill their career and personal goals for life-long learning.”
In addition to the tuition discounts up to $19,000, other benefits for MNA members and their immediate family include a waived application fee and no GRE requirement.
