FINANCIAL AID RESOURCES FOR HEALTH CARE PROFESSIONALS
There are four major sources of financial aid for health care professions students in Colorado: Federal government, state government, institution based, and private sector.
Federal and state government scholarships and loans include: Pell Grants, Supplemental Education Opportunity Grants, Work Study Programs, Perkins Loans, Title 7 Loans, and Federal Nursing Loans. Many loans can act as grants, as they may be forgiven once practicing in a health care profession.
Institution based, and private sector grants and loans differ among companies and organizations. Private companies often focus on one area to give grants and some may focus on providing grants for health care professions training.
