Healthcare Scholarship: National Student Nurses’ Association (NSNA)
The Foundation of the National Student Nurses’ Association sponsors a scholarship for nursing students who are U.S. citizens, as well as for nursing students who have an Alien Registration number. If you fit either one of these descriptions, you may be eligible to apply for the FNSNA nursing scholarship.
Now that you know some of the requirements for this scholarship, you need to know more about who is eligible. If you are currently enrolled in a pre-nursing associate degree program, baccalaureate, generic doctor, diploma and a generic master’s program, you can apply for this scholarship. If you are a graduate student, the only way you can qualify for the scholarship is if your current program is your first degree in nursing. Your nursing school must be state-approved.
Selected regions of the U.S. are eligible for consideration to participate in this scholarship program. Depending upon where your school’s ZIP code is, it may or may not be considered eligible.
Requirements of Scholarship
You need to know that your academic achievement, active involvement in nursing student organizations, and community activities that are related to healthcare can affect your eligibility for application. These are the basic requirements for application; some of the scholarship’s sponsors may have additional eligibility requirements.
When you are working on your application, you need to include the most recent copy of your nursing school and college transcripts. If you are an NSNA member, you should submit proof of your membership. If you are already a registered nurse taking baccalaureate courses or a licensed practical/vocational nurse participating in a program that leads to your registered nurse licensure, you’ll be required to submit your license in order to be considered for the Career Mobility scholarship.
