Because of generous donor support, Suburban Hospital awards thousands of dollars through our Suburban Scholars and Casey Scholars programs each year. These awards may be used toward books, tuition, and related fees, and both programs require a work commitment to Suburban Hospital after completion of the degree.
Suburban Scholarships are available for current employees pursuing degrees in nursing or an allied health field. The program requires a minimum 2.5 GPA.
Casey Scholarships are available to non-employees pursuing a degree in nursing and to current employees pursuing a degree or certification in a critically-needed area. A minimum 3.0 GPA is required to be eligible for a Casey Scholarship and preference is given to applicants in their last two years of study. Click here to learn more about the Casey Scholarship.
