    • As applicable, have received an Honorable Discharge.

Application Information

The 2024 ANCA scholarships will be $3,000 per selected applicant.

All applications must have been submitted by 31 March 2024 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.
