NLN Cecelia Lou Vriheas Scholarship: For nurses and nurse educators who are first generation in their family to pursue higher education and belong to an historically marginalized/excluded group
AACN and NurseThink® have launched a new scholarship program focused on preparing future nurse faculty. Open to students enrolled in master’s and doctoral programs at AACN member institutions, this program will provide $5,000 scholarship awards to students twice a year through 2026. NurseThink® has committed $50,000 to support this program, which will be administered by AACN’s Foundation for Academic Nursing. NurseThink®, a leading provider of student and faculty development tools, approached the Foundation for Academic Nursing about providing support for graduate students with a desire to teach. The NurseThink®-AACN Scholarship was created and is open to all students who are members of the Graduate Nursing Student Academy. To apply, students must complete an online application, provide demographic information and details on their academic achievement, and submit a short essay outlining their plans to teach after graduation. Applications are now being accepted for the first award, which will be presented in May 2022. The application deadline for the first award is April 25.Click here to apply.
