Independence Blue Cross Nurse Scholars Program


Independence Blue Cross (IBC) and the Foundation recognize that the shortage of nurses is not limited to direct patient care professionals. The need to increase the number of graduate students who will be qualified to become nurse educators, in order to train the next generation of nurses, is also an important piece of the puzzle in reversing the nursing shortage.


The IBC Nurse Scholars Program provides financial assistance to graduate nursing students who are pursuing an education that will qualify them to become a nurse educator. The program will underwrite scholarship funding for schools to qualified students attending an accredited graduate nursing program in Bucks, Chester, Delaware, Montgomery and Philadelphia counties

The Nurse Scholars Program will give nursing students the opportunity to receive grants and scholarships toward their graduate degree directly from the qualified nursing schools they attend. For complete eligibility requirements, contact your school’s nursing department. If you have additional questions, call the Pennsylvania Higher Education Foundation at 800-377-4502.
