CNS Foundation Scholarships


Scholarship application submission deadline:  January 31, 2014


The Clinical Nurse Specialist Foundation is accepting applications for 2013-2014 scholarships to support the education of clinical nurse specialists (CNSs).  Our purpose as a Foundation is to increase the number of CNSs who are educated and prepared and thus, address the shortage of CNSs in the United States. 


Eligible students are those who are pursuing a master’s degree in an accredited CNS program or Clinical Nurse Specialists pursuing a research or practice doctorate.  The scholarship is competitive and is based on academic performance, clinical excellence and demonstrated leadership.


The Clinical Nurse Specialist Foundation will award two $1,000 scholarships and two $500 scholarships and will announce the name of the recipients at the annual NACNS convention in March 2014.  Winners should plan to attend to receive recognition for their accomplishment.
