AAMN Scholarships

Thank you for your interest in AAMN Scholarships. The AAMN Foundation is pleased to offer educational scholarships which are made possible through the generosity of our AAMN members and the benevolent giving of select groups of donors.  

Our ability to offer scholarships is directly associated with the availability of funds. Therefore, scholarship applications are only accepted when funds are sufficiently available.

We do not have scholarship information from individual colleges and universities. Please check with your state nursing associations, financial aid offices/nursing program (if in school), and major hospitals in your area (may have a scholarship)
