Preserving Our Past, Capitalizing on the Present, Embracing the Future


One of the Army Nurse Corps Association’s major initiatives is the Scholarship Program. Its purpose is the support of nursing education through scholarship funding to worthy students who are US citizens in an accredited baccalaureate or graduate nursing or anesthesia program. Below are the eligibility criteria and general information.

Eligibility Criteria

  • Students currently enrolled in an accredited baccalaureate or advanced degree nursing or nurse anesthesia program who:
  • Nursing or anesthesia students whose parent(s), spouse, or child(ren) is serving or has served in a component of the US Army.

Application Information

The 2019 ANCA scholarships will be $3000.00 per selected applicant.

The application period for 2019 will open in early December. If you would like to begin gathering information and be prepared to submit once the on-line application process opens, you may download the 2019 Guidelines now. Except as otherwise noted in the guidelines, all information must be submitted electronically via the application web page. Please do not mail or email any documents prior to starting an application on the web page. Notice will be posted here and on the home page when applications begin being accepted.

All applications must have been submitted by 30 March 2019 and will be reviewed by the ANCA Education Committee. Selected students will be notified within a few weeks thereafter. Scholarship funds are sent to the school to be managed for the student, not sent directly to the student.

The Army Nurse Corps Association does not have an official relationship with the US Army, the Army Nurse Corps or the Reserve Officer Training Corps. Accordingly there is no military service obligation for the student receiving this scholarship.
