We continue to research college grants and scholarships. When we find a no essay scholarship, we will add it to the list. We know that there are plenty of scholarship essay contests, but hardly any "no essay contests." However, for now, here is a short list of college scholarships where no essay is required.
is a short six-minute video that gives you an overall look at where to find college grants and scholarships. If you have no idea on where to start to find financial aid, then this video will give you a good idea on how to go about finding free money in the form of financial aid, grants, and scholarships for college or trade schools for a variety of groups of people such as nursing students, single moms, women, traditional students, non-traditional students, and just about any U.S. Citizen seeking scholarships with the least amount of eligibility requirements.

Hi, I am a first time college student in Alaska. I am going for my Bachelors of Science degree in Nursing and I am the first in my family to go to College. I hope to specialize in burn victims or pediatrics. I want to be a Nurse because I know I will be very happy in life if I have a job in which all I do all day is help other people. Also it would allow me to care for my aging mother who works two jobs to support be going to school full-time. I come from a single parent household, I am half African-American and half Caucasian and suffer from OCD (obsessive compulsive disorder) and ADHD. I am 18 years old and go to school at the University of Alaska Anchorage full time in both the Fall and Spring semesters and I take summer classes as well. Im looking for any assistance or aide in achieving my goal of becoming a Registered Nurse in Alaska. Any kind hearted philanthropists who would like to help me out are more then welcome to Email me and I will do whatever it takes to get help paying for my classes and books. Any help or assistance on this area would be greatly appreciated. Thanks again! 😀
Hi, I really need help finding scholarships. I am a previous foster child, but did not age out of care, so I do not get any scholarships for that. I have tried to go to college 2x but each time I could not do it because I did not get enough for FAFSA and my credit is horrible because my mother put bills in my name and never paid them when I was younger, so I can not get loans easily. I am in the process of getting my CNA license, but I need help getting money for my LPN. Any help/advice?
The State Nursing Scholarship is awarded through Maryland’s Higher Education Commission. Undergraduate nursing students are eligible for the scholarship. Applicants must prove that they are residents of Maryland, and the applicant must have a 3.0 GPA. If the applicant receives the scholarship, he or she must agree to serve in one of the selected Maryland health facilities upon graduation.
The Health and Human Services department awards federal scholarships to undergraduate nursing students through its Nursing Scholarship Program.

In exchange, students awarded the scholarship must agree to serve two years in an underserved community.
Indiana’s Student Assistance Commission
Undergraduate nursing students are eligible to apply for the scholarship offered by Indiana’s Student Assistance Commission program. The candidates must be residents of the state of Indiana. Students must exhibit an economic need in order to be eligible to receive the scholarship. The recipient of the scholarship must serve within an Indiana state health facility upon graduation.
Scholarships require an application completed and turned in with a written essay. The essay should explain why you qualify for the award or need it. If the application is strictly for nursing, the essay should state why you want to be a LPN. Most programs only have a certain amount of available scholarships for the school year and will pick the essays that stand out the best.
It is in your best interest to apply for more than one scholarship. There are so many other students submitting applications, so doing multiple applications will benefit you the most. A very good rule to follow is to take your time and make sure both the application and essay are grammatically correct. Check for errors or misspellings before submitting your applications. Also, have another person read your paperwork. Others may find errors that you may have missed. It is also good to pay attention to deadlines. Most scholarships have a set deadline and will not accept late applications. If you are late submitting your paperwork, save it for the next time the scholarship may become available.
Students may also contact colleges, universities, and vocational schools for financial information. Most schools offer private scholarships for specific programs. Others have funding for students who will receive a certain degree or certification after graduation. The financial aide department will have important information on how to apply. There may be certain criteria the student must have in order to qualify:
The Ethel Louise Armstrong Foundation provides scholarships only for female students. Such students must be enrolled in a university or college in the United States. Those awarding the money aim to be objective and to not discriminate. The amount awarded can be between $500 to $2,000 per year.
