The 2018 application period is closed. All applicants were notified and winners will be recognized at the NLN Summit in Chicago on September 13, 2018. 

The NLN Foundation for Nursing Education and Home Instead Senior Care are joining forces to foster and promote geriatric education through a $12,000 scholarship fund for nursing students. Nine scholarships, from two categories, were awarded to prepare a competent nursing workforce to deliver the best care to older adults. The scholarship awards can be used for tuition, fees, and/or books.
