The scholarship fund, created by Albert Einstein Medical Center School of Nursing, Philadelphia’s Alumni Association, in an effort to continue providing qualified, devoted, and caring individuals to the nursing profession. Assuming qualified applicants, the standard will attempt to select at least one scholarship recipient annually in each of the degree levels. However, should multiple strong candidates stand out in a particular degree level, NFP’s scholarship committee reserves the right to select more from that group in lieu of selecting from each degree level. Dollar amounts will vary.
Applicants must attend an accredited baccalaureate, associate degree, RN-to-BSN-completion nursing program, advanced nursing degree program, or (re)-certification program in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. Applicants must be a high school student who will be a matriculated undergraduate student in the fall of the year the award is given. A baccalaureate student must be in his/her sophomore or junior year in May. An associate degree student must be in his/her final year. Application may be made at the end of the first year. A RN-to-BSN-completion student must have been accepted into a degree-completion program. Students not already an RN – including BS-to-BSN students/fast-track students – must be accepted into a basic RN program at the time of scholarship application.
