RN Scholarship funding
Scholarship funding is additional Tuition Assistance (TA) support that is available to RN members who have already exhausted their existing TA funds. Similar to Tuition Assistance, this Scholarship funding is prorated based on the member’s FTE.
Who is eligible for Scholarship funding?
You are eligible for additional TA Scholarship funding if you:
- Are an active RN Training Fund member who has been approved for Tuition Assistance (TA)
- Have already spent what is already available to you through TA
How much Scholarship funding can I apply for?
Similar to TA, Scholarship funding is prorated based on your FTE. The total amount available to you per calendar year* is:
|FTE||Scholarship Funding Level|
|0.75 – 1.0||$3,000|
|0.5 – 0.74||$2,250|
|0.1 – 0.49||$1,500|
*while funds are still available
For how long is Scholarship funding available?
Scholarship funding is available to RN members who are actively using TA, and have already exhausted available TA from September 01, 2023, moving forward. You can apply for Scholarship funding through 2023 and 2024. This is a limited one-time opportunity, based on first-come-first-serve model until available funds are exhausted.
If you’re already actively using the TA benefit in 2023, you can apply for Scholarship funding for any eligible TA-associated costs during 2023.
