The mission of the NLN Foundation for Nursing Education is to raise, steward, and distribute funds that promote excellence in nursing education and help build a strong and diverse nursing workforce.
To that end, the NLN Foundation Scholarship Awards program supports the goal of attracting more seasoned and ethnically diverse nurses to become nurse educators. Scholarships of up to $8,000 will be awarded to assist nurses in the completion of their graduate education, which could include tuition, support for a dissertation or thesis, or travel for attendance at an onsite internship or classes.
To be eligible, applicants must be a nurse pursuing an advanced degree in preparation for a career as a full-time academic nurse educator. In addition, applicants must be a member of NLN (either through individual dues or through their schools' NLN membership).
