Foundation for the National Student Nurses Association (FNSNA) Scholarships
The Foundation for the National Student Nurses Association (FNSNA) Scholarships are primarily intended for nursing students pursuing various nursing degrees. While Patient Care Technician (PCT) students may not be the primary target of these scholarships, they could still be eligible if their PCT program is part of a broader nursing education pathway or if they are enrolled in a nursing program in conjunction with their PCT education.
To be eligible for the FNSNA Scholarships, applicants must:
Be a U.S. citizen or an alien with U.S. Permanent Resident Status.
Be enrolled in a state-approved nursing program that leads to a nursing degree (associate, bachelor’s, master’s, or doctoral).
Have involvement in student nursing organizations and/or community health activities.
Demonstrate financial need.
Maintain good academic standing.
The FNSNA offers multiple scholarships each year, with award amounts that can range from $1,000 to $7,500, depending on the specific scholarship and the applicant’s qualifications.
Scholarship recipients are selected based on various factors, including academic achievement, involvement in student nursing organizations and/or community health activities, financial need, and the overall quality of the application.
The application process typically involves completing an online application form, submitting a personal statement, providing information about the applicant’s academic background, community involvement, and financial need, and obtaining a letter of recommendation from a faculty member or nursing program administrator.
The application deadline for the FNSNA Scholarships usually falls around January or February. The specific deadline may vary each year, so it is essential to check the scholarship provider’s website for the most up-to-date information.
