Financial Aid

Financial aid will vary by each community college.  Students may be eligible for grants and scholarships.

All students accepted into the RIBN Program are encouraged to apply for Forgivable Education Loans for Service.  These are loans that will be forgiven by working as a nurse for a year for each year that aid is awarded.  FELS is an extremely competitive program and students are encouraged to apply by January 15th.  Students may apply for FELS before being accepted into any nursing program, so apply early!  More information on FELS is available at:
