Level Up Nursing Scholarship

The Level Up Scholarship Program provides up to $20,000 in cumulative support to outstanding Brooks Rehabilitation employees enrolled in a LPN or RN program at an accredited college or university.


  • Employees eligible for the scholarship program must submit an application of interest. Applications are then reviewed and selected by the scholarship committee consisting of the Chief Nursing Officer (CNO), Division leadership and the Vice President of Human Resources. Every effort is made to select employees across the Brooks system for a representative cohort group. To be eligible, the employee must:

    • Have at least one (1) year tenure with Brooks in a regular, full or part-time status
    • Be in good standing with the organization
    • Enroll in an accredited LPN or RN program

Additional Guidelines

    • Scholarship funds cover tuition, books, related fees and required equipment.
    • Payment are made on the employee’s behalf directly to the accredited school.
    • Funds paid on behalf of the employee in excess of $5,250 per calendar year are subject to applicable taxes.
    • An employee is not eligible for additional assistance under the Brooks Educational Assistance Program.
    • If needed, the Brooks Human Resources (HR) and the system CNO will assist the student in leveraging all available funding sources with the college/university.
    • The employee must successfully complete their program of study within four (4) years from their enrollment date. After four years, if the employee has still not received their degree, they will need to apply for the Brooks Educational Assistance Program for any additional monetary support.
    • The employee signs an agreement to remain with the organization for a minimum of two (2) years after date of licensure. If the employee does not stay for the required timeframe, HR will work with the employee and Payroll to recoup a pro-rated portion of any funds paid to date on behalf of the employee.
    • If an employee is unable to complete the program, HR and the CNO will determine next steps, if applicable.
