Sponsoring a Nurse Anesthesia Student Scholarship or CRNA Fellowship

You are invited to participate in this worthwhile initiative. A student scholarship or a CRNA fellowship may be sponsored by an individual or an organization. Minimum awards of $3,000 each will be granted annually. This program provides financial assistance to students involved in a nurse anesthesia program and CRNAs enrolled in doctoral study. In establishing the criteria, flexibility has been provided for a sponsor to:
  • Add a specific criterion (i.e., a state association may want the student recipient to come from that state).
  • Indicate a name in which the scholarship is to be given.
  • Describe the specific purpose for establishing the scholarship or fellowship to be used when publicizing it.
  • Decide on an annual basis whether to continue sponsoring the scholarship or fellowship.
To establish a scholarship or fellowship to be awarded, complete and return the Sponsor Application Form along with a check by December 1. If funding cannot accompany the application, please contact the AANA Foundation at 847-655-1170.
