American Indian Nurse Scholarship Awards

The American Indian Nurse Scholarship Award Program was started to give students of American Indian descent the opportunity to pursue careers in nursing. The National Society of The Colonial Dames of America has provided a small number of scholarship awards to assist students of American Indian heritage who are pursuing degrees in nursing or in the field of health care and health education. Eligible students receive per semester and the money is to be used strictly for tuition, books or fees applicable to the student's approved program. To be eligible for a scholarship, the candidate must be at least 1/4 Native American; a high school graduate or have equivalent education; enrolled in pre-nursing, nursing, or healthcare-related; recommended by their counselor, teacher, or other school official; not receiving an Indian Health Service Scholarship; and, should have a career goal directly related to the needs of the Indian people. Applications are accepted twice annually in June and December. For more information or to apply, please visit the scholarship provider's website.
