The Coronavirus pandemic has highlighted the importance of all the work that nurses do.
Nurses are more critical than ever, yet there is a rising nursing shortage in the United States. 1.2 million additional registered nurses are needed by 2030 in order to address the growing shortage.
This scholarship seeks to encourage the next generation of nurses who hope to address the COVID-19 pandemic through their careers.
Any first-generation, BIPOC high school or undergraduate student who is interested in or currently pursuing studies in nursing may apply for this scholarship.
To apply, tell us how you hope to help the world through your medical career and how you plan to positively impact the healthcare of minorities and marginalized groups.
Please tell us a bit about yourself and how you plan to make a positive impact on the world through your medical career. It could be a scientific idea you wish to promote or high-quality healthcare that impacts minorities and addresses health disparities among marginalized groups in our society.
The application deadline is Mar 15, 2022. Winners will be announced on Apr 15, 2022.
The scholarship award is $1,000.
The winner will be publicly announced on Apr 15, 2022. Prior to the announcement date, we may contact finalists with additional questions about their application. We will work with donors to review all applications according to the scholarship criteria. Winners will be chosen based on the merit of their application.
We will send the award check to the financial aid office of the winner’s academic institution or future academic institution in their name, and in the name of their institution (depending on the school’s requirements). If the student's academic institution does not have a financial aid office, the student will receive the funding directly.
Before we award the scholarship, the winner will be required to verify their academic enrollment status by providing a copy of their most recent transcript.
