Established in 2009, the Widow's Home Nursing Student Toolbox Fund assists students in overcoming economic hardships that might prevent completion of the program of study. The funds are available year-round to females, who legally and officially reside in Georgia, with preference given to those who live in Richmond or Columbia Counties, enrolled full-time in the pre-licensure nursing programs (BSN and CNL) and currently attending classes on the Augusta campus.

The amount of each award will be determined by a faculty committee. Applicants may only receive an award once a semester. Examples of hardships include, but are not limited to: uniforms, shoes, books, school supplies, emergent or critical personal needs related to extenuating circumstances.

All requests and applications will remain confidential.
