yeh, my current employer promises me $2000 a year. actually, I plan on attempting to apply for that tomorrow at work. I searched online for scholarships, but many don't fit my profile. I am Caucasian. ;-)
Check with the financial aid office of the school you are applying to. The nursing school I went to actually supplied me with a list of scholarships that previous students had applied for and received. No need to reinvent the wheel. I was awarded a number of them. The local Jewish federation also had a scholarship for Jewish nursing students. They only had something like 3 applicants - nursing isn't such a "hot field" for most Jews.
(I assure you I'm quite Caucasian and had no problem getting scholarships).
