About the Program & Gratitude
This 2019 academic year marks the fifth that WW-NAHN offers scholarships to Latinx nursing students.
In 2015 and 2016, through the support from the UW School of Nursing and diversity, equity and inclusion champion and WW-NAHN co-founding member, Carolyn Chow, we awarded six $500 scholarships to UW nursing students.
Salal Credit Union has generously donated to our scholarship fund, and has allowed us to leverage the funding to increase our ability to provide scholarships since 2017!!
We have also received a generous $1,500 contribution from Mr. Gerardo Campos, and one anonymous donor.
All student recipients are current WW-NAHN members and are engaged in serving the Latinx community through volunteering and/or work. Students receiving the WW-NAHN Scholarship reflect in their work a commitment and passion for addressing health disparities and inequalities affecting the most marginalized and vulnerable Latinx populations. In addition, student recipients identify the positive impact their diverse and unique perspectives bring to the nursing profession.
WW-NAHN offers three types of scholarships to Latinx nursing students and RNs:
ADN/BSN: Students enrolled in associate or baccalaureate degree programs preparing for a career as a registered nurse.
RN Baccalaureate (RNB) Program: A registered nurse in a program leading to a bachelor’s degree
Advance Degree Program: A current RN working toward an advanced degree in nursing. For Master's, DNP and PhD nursing students. Must demonstrate an exemplary commitment to underserved and vulnerable Latinx communities and to the nursing profession through extracurricular professional activities.
