Financial Aid

Students applying for or enrolled in either DNP or PhD programs may apply for the Virginia Doctoral Nursing Student Loan Assistance Repayment Program administered by UVA. Full-time doctoral students are eligible to borrow up to $25,000 per year during the coursework phase of their programs (years 1 and 2), loans that are canceled if a full-time teaching position at a public or private nursing program in Virginia for four years (two years of teaching for each year of loan) is assumed after graduation.

Additionally, DNP students are eligible for other School of Nursing-specific aid (teaching assistantships, scholarships, nurse traineeship funds, and the Nurse Faculty Loan Program). Visit our tuition and financial aid web pages for more information.
