  • Scholarship Description
  • The American Indian Nurse Scholarship Award Program was started by the NSCDA in 1927 to give students of American Indian descent the opportunity to pursue careers in nursing. The National Society of The Colonial Dames of America has provided a small number of scholarship awards to assist students of American Indian heritage who are pursuing degrees in nursing or in the field of health care and health education. Eligible students receive per semester and the money is to be used strictly for tuition, books or fees applicable to the student's approved program. The grant is sent to the school and credited to the student's account. Once a student is accepted, he or she may reapply for continued funds each semester as long as the student remains in academic good standing.

    To be eligible for a scholarship, the candidate must be:
    -1/4 American Indian, enrolled in a tribe. If not enrolled, the student will be considered if he or she can prove direct tribal ancestry
    -A high school graduate or have equivalent education
    -Enrolled in an accredited school
    -Enrolled in the nursing program, having achieved good scholastic standing in pre-nursing; or, enrolled in a health care or health education program
    -Expected to graduate two years after enrollment if in an Associate Degree program
    -Expected to graduate in four years if pursuing a B.S.
    -Post-graduate students are also eligible
    -Maintaining the scholastic average required by the school
    -Recommended by their counselor, teacher, or other school official
    -In need of financial assistance
    -Not receiving an Indian Health Service Scholarship
