Scholarships/Award Program: Accepting Applications Now Through July 1, 2022!
The ASPAN Scholarship/Award Program is a member benefit designed to provide financial assistance to ambulatory surgery, post-anesthesia, pre-anesthesia and pain management nurses aspiring to enhance their abilities to contribute to the perianesthesia nursing community. This scholarship/award granting year is 2022.
The scholarship application is based on a point system reflecting your current participation in component or ASPAN national activities. The points needed are easy and fun to achieve. Points for attending a component local, district, or state level educational session . . . ASPAN/component virtual conferences count, too. Volunteering for a component project, sitting on a component board of directors, providing a lecture, and even attending the ASPAN National Conferences all count towards scholarship points. You will see the points add up quickly.
Applicants must be current Active Category members of ASPAN and a component for the past two full years prior to the application deadline, and must provide the customary letters of recommendation, statement of financial need, and a personal statement.
