WASHINGTON, DC, March 9, 2021 – Since 2012, AfterCollege, the largest independent career network for college students and recent graduates, has partnered with the American Association of Colleges of Nursing (AACN) to provide support to students who are seeking baccalaureate, masters, or doctoral degrees in nursing. AACN is pleased to announce that the AfterCollege-AACN Nursing Scholarship has been renewed and will be administered by AACN’s Foundation for Academic Nursing. This annual $10,000 commitment will provide the opportunity for nursing students to complete their education and enter the nursing profession.
“AfterCollege is thrilled to continue this scholarship through AACN’s Foundation. We believe this relationship has helped many deserving students during their college career by facilitating their pathway to the nursing workforce,” said Roberto Angulo, Chief Executive Officer and Co-Founder of AfterCollege.
To apply for the AfterCollege-AACN Nursing Scholarship, students will need to complete an online application form. Special consideration will be given to students in a graduate program with the goal of becoming a nurse educator; those completing an RN to BSN or MSN program; and those enrolled in an accelerated nursing program.
“We are grateful for this continued support from our long-time partner AfterCollege,” said Dr. Deborah Trautman, AACN President and Chief Executive Officer. “This scholarship is an investment in future nurses and ensures that many promising nursing students have access to higher education.”
Scholarships in the amount of $2,500 will be awarded each quarter. Winners will be announced within 30 days of each submission deadline (March 31, June 30, September 30, December 31). This scholarship is non-recurring and will be awarded to individual students for one semester only.
