Masters in Nursing (MSN) Scholarships and Fellowships

Master of Science in Nursing Scholarships and Fellowships

There are many endowed fellowships for medical students and nursing students that are administered by universities. Successful graduates from university medical schools and long established schools of nursing have provided endowments to the alma mater for annual grants made available to students showing academic merit and financial need, and in some cases for students specializing in a particular medical field. Advanced practice nursing hasn't been part of the medical profession as long as RNs and MDs in general, so there are fewer scholarships dedicated exclusively to graduate work in the nursing field. But assiduous search of your university's scholarship database may turn up some local opportunities that are not typically on the financial aid radar screen. Find Masters in Nursing Online today.

  1. Health Resources and Services Administration provides scholarships to graduate and undergraduate nursing students as part of a program sponsored by the Department of Health and Human Services. In exchange for a scholarship or grant, students agree to work in a designated facility with an acute nursing shortage for at least two years. The scholarship program pays all tuition and fees, and provides a monthly living stipend that is $1,326 for the 2010 - 2011 school year.
  2. American Association of Colleges of Nursing has several scholarship and fellowship programs available to undergraduate and graduate students. The AACN has a scholarship program that offers $5,000 awards to students enrolled in a nursing program affiliated with a certification program, or who have applied through a centralized school application program. There is also a scholarship program offered through AACN for minority students at the graduate or undergraduate level that is co-sponsored by Johnson & Johnson; the stipulation for applicants is that they intend to work as faculty instructors after graduation. There is also a program targeted at nurse educator students and a grant program sponsored by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation.
  3. American Association of Critical Care Nurses has a unique scholarship program for nurses who are engaged in advancing their education in the area of critical care. The funding is based on an explanation from the applicant of what the particular educational pursuit is designed to accomplish and what the personal professional benefits will be. There are a few scholarships available for specific coursework. Otherwise they are dedicated to degree programs. The maximum award is $3,000 per applicant.
  4. Nurse Practitioner Healthcare Foundation has three scholarship programs and eight awards given annually to nurse practitioners or NP graduate students. The scholarships are for students engaged in graduate studies in the gastroenterology area, or in the community services area - a MSN degree such as nurse educator or public health specialization. There are awards available for MSN graduates or students who have been active in cardiovascular education, in certain types of research. Previous awards have been given for research in the use or opioids, in adolescent health, and in international traveler health.
  5. American Cancer Society supports a graduate nursing scholarship program open to applicants pursuing a degree that will lead to cancer nursing practice. Students enrolled in a nurse practitioner program or clinical nurse specialist program with specialization in oncology would be eligible for this program, which awards $10,000 per year for up to two years.
