    Good afternoon,

    I am very interested in applying for your scholarship and am wondering if it is only available to traditional 2 year or 4 year nursing programs. I have been accepted to the Certificate Entry Into Nursing program at UCONN which is a 12 month accelerated program beginning in January of 2016. Due to this non-traditional academic schedule, I would not have an official transcript from UCONN as of the scholarship deadline of June 15th. Other than the transcript, I meet all other criteria. Please let me know if I would still be eligible to apply.

    Thank you!

    Becky Gibson
