Nursing Scholarships

We at the Ann May Center for Nursing believe that education is a lifelong process and recognize that financial barriers may sometimes inhibit individuals from reaching their educational goals.

For this reason, we strive to make our nurses aware of the numerous scholarships that exist to provide financial support for individuals returning to school to advance their education in nursing. We award scholarships twice a year to assist Meridian Team Members students who are preparing to enter the nursing profession, as well as nurses who are seeking advanced degrees, to coordinate a variety of foundation sponsored scholarship programs for nurses. We also fund special projects that have the potential to improve patient, institutional, and professional outcomes.

Financial support is available in the form of grants for nurses performing research studies with the potential to improve the quality of health care delivered to the patient population.
