The Bonnie Fang Nursing Scholarship is open to all full-time nursing students in a state-approved associate or baccalaureate degree nursing program in the states of California and Nevada. Applicants must be legal U.S. citizens or permanent residents who demonstrate financial need, are free from any federal judgment liens or existing service commitment, and not overdue on a federal debt; be willing to contribute back to the Bonnie Fang Foundation (BFF) through volunteer work at fundraising events and functions; be enrolled during the upcoming academic school year to qualify for this scholarship; and be aware that recipients are chosen based on the evaluation of applicant's GPA, transcripts, references, community involvement, leadership role, and required interview, essay, and video. Applications run from September until the deadline, and recipients will be notified by the end of March.
The Bonnie Fang Foundation was established in 2002 to honor nurses who demonstrate the dedication and desire to deliver outstanding patient care, while continuing our mother’s legacy of giving to the community. We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization committed to providing financial assistance to nursing students pursuing a career in Patient Care and bringing awareness to our communities of the ongoing nursing shortage in our nation.
