GSNA Professional Growth Grant

The Graduate Student Nurses Association (GSNA) Invites YOU to apply for the Professional Growth Grant.

What is the Professional Growth Grant?

The purpose of the GSNA grant is to encourage leadership and professionalism among MN, MSN, and DNP students. The grant is meant to be used for activities that foster professional growth as an APN (continuing education, attending a conference, service work, etc.). 

The GSNA Grant is awarded based on a blinded review. Funds are distributed as reimbursement upon submission of receipts. Funds cannot be awarded for academic tuition or expenses related to academic courses (e.g., cannot be used for required lab fees or textbooks). Reimbursement must be requested within 1 CALENDAR YEAR after the awardee is notified.  Applications are reviewed on an individual basis. Although applicants can apply for up to $1000 reimbursement, the dollar amount of the award is dependent on the quality of the essay submitted (blind review), the amount of funds available (varies each cycle; dependent on GSNA revenue), and the number of applicants in each cycle. Grants are not awarded to every applicant.

Note: This award is not applicable to academic tuition, books, or devices.
