TxANA Student Scholarships Policy

TxANA has budgeted for three (3) student sponsorships for each of the three AANA meetings, not to exceed $1,500.00 per student, per meeting. AANA meetings available for sponsorship are:

  • AANA Annual Congress (August)
  • Fall Leadership Academy (November)
  • Mid-Year Assembly (April)

Purpose: To encourage student involvement in political issues that impact CRNAs and to engender involvement on the state and national levels.

Process: Texas nurse anesthesia students wishing to receive a scholarship will need to apply to TxANA via the online application form. Applications will be processed in the order in which they are received. TxANA will contact your Program Director for academic/clinical suitability prior to scholarship award. In selecting recipients for a scholarship, consideration will be given to involvement in TxANA committees, key contacts (legislative), student track sessions, rotating school representation, and the order in which applications were received. Students receiving national sponsorship will be passed over to allow greater representation by more students from Texas. Every effort will be made to ensure that scholarships are evenly distributed between the programs. The scholarships will be taken in total so that if only two students go to one of the national meetings, an extra student scholarship would be available for one of the national meetings. This should be done on an annual basis beginning with the AANA Annual Congress and ending with the Mid-Year Assembly. Any money unused at the end of the fiscal year (August 31) will be placed into an account for funding future students scholarships.

Responsibilities: Sponsored students will be required to attend the meeting in its entirety and as a representative of TxANA, you will be expected to dress and behave appropriately. Each student must submit to the TxANA a copy of receipts and a required form in order to receive reimbursement. Reimbursement forms shall be submitted no later than two weeks post meeting. Each sponsored student is required to contribute a scholar article (at least 500 words) describing their experience or something that they learned at the meeting for the most immediate TxANA NewsLetter. Deadline will be provided. A photo in a JPG format should also be submitted with the article.
