College is expensive. The average annual cost of in-state tuition in New Hampshire was $18,724 for the 2017-2018 school year, according to the website CollegeCalc.

So imagine how excited students...and parents...across the Granite State are to learn that Rivier University in Nashua is offering ten "free ride" scholarships. WMUR-TV is reporting that Rivier will award ten nursing students an opportunity to earn their Associate of Science Nursing degree thanks to a $300,000 anonymous donation.

The scholarships, worth $30,00 each, will pay for tuition, books, fees, and a travel stipend.

According to WMUR-TV, the school is teaming with Catholic Charities New Hampshire and will offer LPNs employed by Catholic Charities and working in long-term skilled facilities.

Students will be selected for interviews by the end of April. Classes will begin this fall.
