Scholarship FAQs

When will scholarship checks be mailed?

Scholarship checks are mailed directly to schools in June.

Do I need to send official transcripts? 

An official transcript is not needed, an unofficial transcript is sufficient.

Do you have a form for my references to complete?

Yes, beginning in 2020. Please have your references use our recommendation form. https://rainierolympicnurses.org/scholarships/

Should I send in the recommendation forms with my application or separate? 

We typically ask that applicants collect the completed recommendation forms and mail them in with their application. But they can be sent directly to the office by the recommender: R.O.N.A. 4115 Bridgeport Way W. Suite F University Place, WA 98466 or emailed to us at office@rainierolympicnurses.org.

If I’m a past scholarship recipient, can I apply again? 

Nursing students are eligible to receive a R.O.N.A. scholarship award once every other year. If you didn’t receive a scholarship last year, you are welcome to apply.

I’m a graduating high school senior but I’ve been accepted to a nursing program. Should I apply for a high school level scholarship or a college level scholarship?

You are welcome to submit an application for both scholarships. Please submit two complete application packets. Your applications will be reviewed as part of each level but a student will only receive one scholarship from R.O.N.A in any given year.

How can I deliver my application?

The best option is to have it postmarked by the due date and mailed to our office. If you would like to hand-deliver it, you can drop it off by slipping it through the mail slot. Our NEW office is located at 4115 Bridgeport Way W. Suite F. University Place, WA 98466. Deliver by slipping in the mailslot on the door. Must be received at the office on by midnight on March 31st. We do not accept faxes or electronically submitted applications.

If I am awarded the scholarship, when can I start using the money?

The funds will be sent to your school in June. If any information regarding the school has changed between submitting the application and June, please email us at office@rainierolympicnurses.org to ensure we have the correct information.

When will I hear back about the scholarship? 

We will notify all applicants in mid-April by email or mail after the Scholarship Committee has made their decisions.
