Application Deadline: June 15, 2021 at 11:30 PM Eastern

NAHN Scholarships are open to current NAHN members who are in good standing for at least 6 months before the scholarship application deadline and who are enrolled full-time in accredited LVN/LPN, associate, diploma, baccalaureate, and graduate nursing programs.

The selection of recipients is based on NAHN membership, financial need, current academic standing, and nursing students who demonstrate the promise of professional contributions to the nursing profession and who have the potential to act as role models for other aspiring nursing students.

The number of scholarships offered each year is dependent upon the amount in the scholarship fund. Students may not receive more than three years of scholarships.
