What are my chances of receiving a scholarship?

This depends largely on how many students apply for the scholarship. Typically, scholarships that are limited to students within the state have a better chance of winning than other scholarships, so you have a great chance of receiving a scholarship. The more applicants there are for a particular offer, the less chance you have of winning. Also, keep in mind that Phipps & Howell law firm will be giving away three scholarships.

How does experience in the nursing profession increase my chances of receiving a scholarship?

Experience in the nursing profession does not increase your chances of winning the scholarship, but it may give you great material to include in the essay portion of the scholarship.

Is my G.P.A. needed to apply for this scholarship?

No. You do not need to submit your G.P.A to apply for this scholarship.

How quickly will I be notified?

You will typically be notified within a week of the deadline, though the notification deadline may vary depending on the number of applicants.
