Every year, the Canadian Nurses Foundation gives out more than $275,000 in scholarships and bursaries to advance nursing practice and knowledge in Canada. Our scholarships are awarded based upon merit. We believe that supporting Canada’s best and brightest nurses will ultimately lead to superior patient outcomes and a stronger Canadian health care system. As Canada’s only national nursing foundation, we proudly accept applications from students across the country, in all regions of Canada.

Online scholarship applications must be submitted no later than 11:59 EST on Thursday February 22. Applicants will be informed of results by the end of June.

The scholarships application process is now open.
