COVID-19 Nursing Student Support Fund
The COVID-19 Nursing Student Support Fund provides one-time grants to nursing students enrolled in AACN member schools who need financial support to complete their nursing programs and/or meet life expenses.
With more than 2,800 applications received, nursing students from all 50 states and the District of Columbia were chosen for support following a competitive application process. The Foundation for Academic Nursing is seeking additional support from other corporate and individual donors for this fund to expand our ability to help more nursing students in need.

Faculty Scholars Grant Program
Last fall, AACN announced a new research grant program for nurse faculty. Funding for this program was raised through proceeds collected from sponsorships in AACN’s 50th Anniversary guide. More than 150 schools of nursing and colleague organizations contributed to this guide, which raised $100,000.
The funding will be distributed to support four $25,000 faculty scholarship projects through 2022. Two awards will be offered in the 2020-2021 academic year, and two will be offered in the 2021-2022 academic year. The focus of these scholarly activities should reflect current issues in nursing education or practice and support of AACN’s strategic priorities.
