Each year at the ANA-MAINE Annual Meeting and Conference, a silent auction is held for the benefit of a scholarship ($250-$500) for a nursing student in a Maine undergraduate nursing program. Scholarships will be presented at the Annual ANA-MAINE Awards dinner each spring.
Students must be a student in good standing in a Maine undergraduate nursing program, have successfully completed one semester of a clinical course and be a member of their school’s student nurse association. Applications must be submitted electronically to the ANA-MAINE Student Scholarship Review Committee by March 20.
Criteria for Selection
Letter of Reference. A letter of reference from the SNA advisor should address that the student applicant has demonstrated the ability to provide holistic, safe patient care demonstrating principles of professional accountability, responsibility and integrity.
Student Application Letter. The student applicant submits a statement of not more than one typed page stating how the scholarship would help with the completion of the nursing degree.
Please send both the advisor reference and the student letter to: firstname.lastname@example.org
Please be sure to include your name, email address, and the name of your Student Nurse Organization in each student application letter and the letters of reference. Submissions will be judged by two members of ANA-MAINE and two members of the Student Nurse Association of Maine.
Funding for the scholarships is based on the money raised at the Annual Convention Silent Auction and Donations. Donations of all amounts are welcome and appreciated. Click here to make a donation.
