About the NAHN Scholarship Program
Scholarship awards are presented to NAHN members enrolled in accredited LVN/LPN, associate, diploma, baccalaureate, and graduate nursing programs.
Selection of recipients is based on need, current academic standing, whether they are a United States citizen or legal resident of the United States and other criteria.
Scholarship recipients are a select group of Hispanic nursing students who demonstrate promise of professional contributions to the nursing profession and who have the potential to act as role models for other aspiring nursing students.
The number of scholarships offered each year is dependent upon the amount of money in the scholarship fund.
Scholarships are presented each year at NAHN’s annual conference.
