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 29, 2022. Winners will be announced on Apr 29, 2022.

The winner will be publicly announced on Apr 29, 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.
Award checks will be sent to the financial aid office of the winner's academic institution or future academic institution in their name to be applied to their tuition, and in the name of their institution (depending on the school's requirements). If the award is for a qualified educational non-tuition expense, we will work with the winner directly to distribute the award and make sure it goes towards qualified expenses.
Before we award the scholarship, the winner will be required to confirm their academic enrollment status. Depending on the circumstances, verification of Student ID and/or their most recent transcript will be required.
