Scholarship Overview

The Connecticut Nurses Foundation strives to assist nursing students, registered nurses, nurse leaders and researchers  in achieving higher levels of education, professional success, and pursue contributions to the profession of nursing and health care.

In 2020 CNF awarded over $7000 through 12 scholarships to Connecticut students from 10 different universities and schools of nursing!

CNF prides itself on assisting non-traditional students and scholarship candidates with limited resources who could not complete their education without aid – whether it be for tuition, textbooks, childcare or other expenses. Preference is given to scholarship candidates who are Connecticut residents, who will attend Connecticut schools of nursing, or who have a commitment to practicing nursing in the state of Connecticut.
