I was directly accepted into the Curry Nursing program, so that had a big influence on my decision...I would also get to start my clinical rotations during sophomore year, so I would gain that real world experience right off the bat. Add in the proximity to Boston and the connections you can make at all of the great hospitals there, you can't get any better than that.

State Programs

State grants are based on financial need and may be offered to eligible students from their state of legal residence.  You should complete the FAFSA and follow any additional application requirements from your home state.  You should also be aware of any deadlines that are imposed by your home state. Many states such as Vermont, Rhode Island, Connecticut, and Pennsylvania have reciprocal agreements with Massachusetts and provide funding to students who attend Massachusetts colleges. If you are eligible for state aid funds, your tuition account will be credited once the College receives the funds from your state agency for the semester but no earlier than the end of the add/drop period for the semester. Please contact your state agency for additional information regarding eligibility.

Christian A. Herter Memorial Scholarship Program

The Christian A. Herter Memorial Scholarship Program is a state-supported program whose mission includes providing educational opportunities to Commonwealth students who demonstrate academic promise and desire to attend post-secondary institutions. The Christian A. Herter Memorial Scholarship Program was established in 1972 by the Massachusetts State Legislature as an early identification program to recruit students in the 10th and 11th grades whose socio-economic backgrounds and environmental conditions may inhibit their ability to persevere and attain educational goals.

To accomplish its mission, the Christian A. Herter Memorial Scholarship Program has developed an extensive partnership of representatives from social service agencies, public and private secondary institutions, civic agencies, religious organizations, and the educational community. Students are nominated by guidance counselors, social workers, ministers and educators who are familiar with their circumstances and selected semi-finalists participate in a rigorous interview process. Each year, 25 students in the 10th and 11th grades are selected to receive awards of up to 50 percent (50%) of their calculated need at the college of their choice within the continental United States. The students that are selected for this program must have overcome major adversity in their lives (i.e. physical or mental abuse, catastrophic illness, etc.). Obstacles may be mental, physical, geographic or societal. Students must exhibit academic potential for post-secondary success. There are approximately 100 students that are currently enrolled in colleges and universities across the United States with the assistance of the Christian A. Herter Memorial Scholarship.

To be eligible for a Christian A. Herter Memorial Scholarship, a student must:

  • Students must be enrolled in a public or private secondary school in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts and legal residents of the State.
  • Have a cumulative grade point average of 2.5 on a 4.0 scale.
  • Exhibit difficult personal circumstances, high financial need, and strong academic promise to continue education beyond the secondary level.
  • Upon graduation from high school, enroll as a full-time undergraduate student in an eligible program as defined by the institution.
  • Provide evidence of documented need as measured by a federally approved system of need analysis.
  • Be in compliance with state law regarding Selective Service Registration.
  • Not be in default of a Federal or State loan or owe a refund on any previously received financial aid.

Awards are up to $15,000. For full-time study based on education costs, including tuition, room, board, required fees, books and transportation.

Applications are generally due in early February. For more information contact the Massachusetts Office of Student Financial Assistance at (617) 727-9420.
