Since its inception, the ANPF Scholarships & Grants program has awarded over $1 million to NPs for educational support and innovative research projects. ANPF scholarships have enabled over 500 new NPs to enter the field, providing an immediate impact to patient populations.

In 2014, we were able to offer $27,000 in NP educational scholarships and research grants. While the scholarship submissions are closed, there is still time to apply for significant funding for new, NP-led research. The application cycle for research grants closes on January 30, 2015.
