The American Indian Nurse Scholarship Award Program was started by the NSCDA in 1927 to give students of American Indian descent the opportunity to pursue careers in nursing. The students are expected to return to work among their people to help improve health care. Some students work on reservations, and others find employment in hospitals in areas largely populated by American Indians. Must be 1/4 American Indian and enrolled in a tribe, if not enrolled, the student will be considered if they can prove direct tribal ancestry. Must have financial need and not be receiving an Indian Health Service Scholarship.
