Local and state civic organizations as well as businesses often have scholarship monies available for nursing students. Contact your area Lion's Club, Civitan Club, Rotary Club, and DAR (to name a few) for local and state scholarship opportunities. Businesses such as Target, WalMart, Wendy's and McDonald's (among others) may also have limited scholarship resources for education.
Many healthcare organizations also offer scholarship/grant opportunities to individuals who are pursuing nursing education. Be sure and check with local healthcare facilities to determine what opportunities may exist in your community.
The Johnson and Johnson Discover Nursing website has a Nursing Scholarship search tool that provides information about many competitive nursing scholarships.
