Mayo Clinic Workforce Development Scholarships 

Mayo Clinic prides itself on teamwork and relies on the understanding that all members of our organization contribute to the efficient delivery of the unparalleled patient care for which we are known. Students who apply for and are admitted to the Perioperative Nursing Program will receive the Mayo Clinic Workforce Development Scholarship. This scholarship covers the full cost of tuition. 

These awards support students who take the first important step toward completion of an academic program in areas that represent critical workforce needs for our organization, and that will prepare them for employment with Mayo Clinic or another health care organization.
