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 

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

The ENA Staff-Sponsored Annual Conference Scholarships are intended to ease conference cost and travel expenses for ENA members who would otherwise be unable to attend. The 2014 ENA Annual Conference is October 7-11, 2014 in Indianapolis.

Congratulations to the following recipients:

John Becklehimer, RN – Louisiana
Katherine Mason, BSN – North Carolina.
