Scholarship Opportunities

2014 Professional Development Scholarships​​

Professional development education scholarships meet member needs for short-term, focused education. Frequently the nurse applicants do not receive funds from their hospitals to support their participation in ENA educational programs. Thanks to generous donations to the ENA Foundation, we have the opportunity to award the following continuing education awards. 

Annual Conference Scholarships

ENA Staff-Sponsored Annual Conference Scholarships *Apply Today*

Thanks to ENA staff contributions to the recent State Fundraising Challenge, the ENA Foundation is currently accepting applications for two new $500 conference scholarships. Staff contributions from the Challenge have been invested in member education in the form of these scholarships.

Academic Scholarship Opportunities

Over the past 22 years, the ENA Foundation has awarded over $2 million dollars in support of its mission to provide educational scholarships and research grants in the discipline of emergency nursing. These scholarships and grants are made possible due to the generous support from individuals, ENA members state councils, local chapters, industry and friends of emergency nursing.

ENA Foundation academic scholarships offered are available for licensed nurses who are current members of the Emergency Nurses Association, in addition there are a minimum number of scholarships offered for non-RN applicants with specific eligibility requirements.
