IME Becas Scholarship Program/Esperanza Latino Center/Gateway - The Institute for Mexicans Abroad Consulate of México in Indianapolis, Esperanza Latino Center and Gateway Community and Technical College have partnered to establish a scholarship. Through the IME Becas Scholarship Program/Esperanza/Gateway, students from Gateway who are  Mexican or of Mexican origin can apply. Two (2) scholarships of $1,000 each will be awarded to Gateway students. Gateway will match the amount and each student will receive a total of $2,000 for the 2022-2023 academic year. These recipients will be acknowledged and recognize at Esperanza’s fiesta dinner scheduled on December 2, 2022.  Applicants must meet the selection criteria and must submit their application to Esperanza.

Nursing Incentive Scholarship Fund (NISF) - The Nursing Incentive Scholarship Fund (NISF) provides scholarships to Kentucky residents attending approved LPN, ADN, BSN, or graduate nursing programs. NISF recipients are selected individually by the Board, using specified criteria outlined in regulation 201 KAR 20:390. The amount of each scholarship is $1,500 per semester, a max of $3,000 per year. NISF scholarship recipients may use the funds they are awarded for cost of living expenses—the award funds do not need to be directly applied to tuition or the cost of books. The funds are thus directly awarded to the recipients and not to their programs of nursing. After completing the program and obtaining licensure (if applicable), scholarship recipients must complete one year full-time work as a nurse in Kentucky for each year of study funded (or its equiv​alent).

All applications are due for receipt between January 1 and June 8, and are for the academic year commencing that fall.
