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 program in baccalaureate or graduate nursing, anesthesia, or related healthcare field. Below are the eligibility criteria and general information.

Eligibility Criteria

  • Students currently enrolled in an accredited baccalaureate or advanced degree program in nursing, nurse anesthesia, or related healthcare field who:

      » Are serving or have previously served in any branch, and at any rank, of a component of the US Army (Active Army, Army National Guard and Army Reserve);

      » Are not currently receiving funding by a component of the US Army, (e.g., scholarship ROTC students and students receiving full GI Bill benefits are not eligible); and,

      » As applicable, have received an Honorable Discharge.

  • Nursing or anesthesia students whose parent(s), spouse, or child(ren) is serving or has served in a component of the US Army.

General Information

The 2017 ANCA scholarships will be $3,000 per selected applicant. All applications must be received on the 2017 form below by 31 March 2017 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 students receiving this scholarship.
