Current Opportunities for American Association of Colleges of Nursing (AACN)

Minority Nurse Faculty Scholars Program

Opportunity Type: Scholarship
Application Deadline: May 01, 2018
Description: The American Association of Colleges of Nursing (AACN), with support from the Johnson & Johnson Campaign for Nursing’s Future, is currently offering a eight round of scholarship funding to underrepresented minority (URM) nursing students who plan to work as nursing faculty after graduation. Applicants must be enrolled full-time in a doctoral nursing program or a clinically-focused master’s degree program. Additionally, applicants must commit to becoming full-time faculty in an accredited registered nursing program after graduation. Mentorship and leadership development are important features of this program. 

This scholarship program is designed to address the growing shortage of nurse educators while diversifying the nurse faculty population in the United States. In addition to seeking out individuals committed to careers in nursing education, this program also will expand the number of culturally-competent nurse educators available to teach an increasingly diverse student body.
