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.
» 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.
The 2016 ANCA scholarships will be $3,000 per selected applicant. All applications must be received on the 2016 form below by 31 March 2016 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.
To apply for an ANCA Scholarship, download the 2016 Application Form. It can be completed digitally using
Microsoft Word (or equivalent word processing software) and submitted
as an email attachment or printed and sent by mail along with all of the specified attachments.
