The California Endowment-AACN Minority Nurse Faculty Scholarship program provides $18,000 in financial support to students pursuing a graduate degree in nursing as well as student mentoring and leadership development components to facilitate academic success. To cover the cost and expenses related to attending the leadership conference, $1,500 in award monies will be held in escrow for the scholarship recipients. Though students receiving support may attend classes at any school of nursing, students must return to their home state of California after graduation to assume a teaching role at a California institution. The schools where scholarship recipients will be attending classes are required to offer a match of some portion of the student's tuition.
Applications are now available to students seeking funding for the 2008-2009 academic year. See http://www.aacn.nche.edu/CAEawardApp.pdf. Applications must be received by May 30, 2008. For more information or to ask questions, please contact AACN Project Coordinator Annie Alesandrini at firstname.lastname@example.org.
