Scholarship

Each year the AzPANA Board of Directors allocates money for scholarships to assist AzPANA members in attending educational seminars, ASPAN National Conference, ILSPAN International Conference, Nursing Education Programs, Medical Missions,  or in becoming Certified or Recertified.  Many times the scholarship money goes unused simply because no one applies for it.

Those considering applying for a scholarship must be a member of AzPANA for the past 2 years consecutively. The number of points required depends on the type of scholarship; it ranges from 4 points to 10 points. Members can easily earn points by attending an AzPANA Conference, donating a raffle item for a conference, writing an article for the newsletter or volunteering to serve on the AzPANA Board.

The AzPANA Board is committed to assisting the membership towards achieving educational and certification goals.  The application form is available on the AzPANA website as well as from any board member or from the scholarship chairperson. Scholarships should be submitted to the scholarship chairperson at the address listed on the application form.  The money is available to assist you; you need only apply for it.  Please feel free to contact me if you have questions.
