UW-Madison's School of Nursing

The University of Wisconsin–Madison School of Nursing, established in 1924, is the leading nursing research institution in Wisconsin and a crucial part of the state's health care system.  As an integral academic partner situated in the health sciences sector of campus with the School of Medicine and Public Health and the School of Pharmacy, the School of Nursing collaborates with scientists and renowned researchers across the UW–Madison campus, the nation, and the world.  The School's research is translational in nature and grounded in practical application–the work being done has an immediate impact on Wisconsin's communities, hospitals, clinics, schools, and homes.

Slated to open for Fall 2014, the Signe Skott Cooper Hall will be a state of the art facility to educate and train nursing students.  It gives the School of Nursing its first dedicated home since the Nurses Dormitory, built in 1924, was razed in 2002.


Scholarships for Students

The scholarship process at UW-Madison is highly competitive.  As you might be aware, there is not one single application for scholarships, but many different applications for many different scholarships, and those applications can have different opening dates and deadlines.

Most programs on the UW-Madison campus use My Scholarships to accept applications, but there are still some programs that have a different process, so please be sure to contact your school, college, or department if you are unsure. See our Other Resourcespage for additional funding sources on campus, as well as a list of trusted national search websites.
