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. This program provides assistance to students involved in a nurse anesthesia program and CRNAs enrolled in doctoral study. Minimum awards of $3,000 each will be granted annually. In lieu of a student scholarship application fee this year, new scholarship donors will be charged an annual administrative fee of $150 for a $3,000 scholarship and $250 for a $5,000 scholarship. 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 9
. If funding cannot accompany the application, please contact the AANA Foundation at 847-655-1170.
