Minority Nursing Scholarship Program 2016 by Idowu Olabode : January 15, 2016, 12:22:38 AM
1. William Randolph Hearst Endowed Scholarship Fund

The William Randolph Hearst Endowed Scholarship Fund was established by the Vanderbilt University School of Nursing. This award was established for minority students and awarded on the basis of merit and need.

The School of Nursing offers 6 full tuition scholarships each year as well as partial scholarships. Full-time enrollment (12 hours per semester) is required to be considered for a scholarship (some specialty programs may require less than 12 hours in one semester and a student would still receive a scholarship). Part-time students and post-master’s students are not eligible for scholarships but may qualify for loans.

For first year students, consideration for one of the three full scholarships and the amount of partial scholarship awards are based upon an individual’s GPA and GRE, GMAT or other standardized test score. Scholarships for 2nd year/returning students are based on a student’s GPA for their first two semesters in the nursing program. We offer three full tuition scholarships for students who will be entering their specialty year and to be considered for one of the three full tuition scholarships, the student must have earned a 4.0 in their first semester and a 4.0 in their second semester. The student must have entered the program as a PreSpecialty student. All other scholarships for 2nd year/returning students are partial scholarships and are typically awarded at the same partial amount they received for their first year.

In order for a student to maintain a scholarship each semester, they must continue to make satisfactory academic progress and their overall cumulative GPA cannot fall below a 3.0. If a student’s GPA falls below a 3.0, they will lose their scholarship and may have to petition to have their scholarship re-instated for another semester once their GPA returns to at least a 3.0. All awards are made through the School of Nursing Scholarship Committee according to the requirements of the funding source.

All DNP students are awarded a partial nursing scholarship unless their tuition is paid in full from another scholarship source. For 2015-2016, DNP students will be awarded a partial nursing scholarship of $3,500 for the year for full time and part time students.

4.American Nurses Association Ethnic/Racial Minority Doctoral Fellowships

The American Nurses Association developed the Ethnic/Racial Minority Doctoral Fellowships for minority registered nurses. Applicants must have a master’s degree in Psychiatric/Mental Health Nursing or a closely related field and be pursuing a doctoral degree in Psychiatric/Mental Health Nursing or a closely related field.

The Minority Fellowship Program (MFP) at the American Nurses Association (ANA) grew as a response to the lack of mental health and substance abuse nurse professionals who could provide culturally competent care to an increasingly diverse population with ever-expanding needs for mental health and substance abuse disorders services, research, advocacy, and policy development.

Through the MFP, the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) provides federal grants to increase the number of PhD prepared nurses, psychiatrists, psychologists, social workers, and marriage and family therapists from underrepresented ethnic minority groups who will:

Conduct research about substance abuse and mental health disorders prevention and treatment within minority populations, across all age groups and in a variety of settings;

Assume leadership roles in the initiation of scientific investigations and service utilization phenomena that occur among ethnic minority populations;

Expand and contribute to the evidence-based practice of substance abuse and mental health disorders prevention and treatment among ethnic minority populations throughout the lifespan; and

Function as leaders and members of interdisciplinary research, public health policy, and direct-service care teams with the objective of improving the overall health status of ethnic minority populations.
