Professional Funding Support

Connecting Nurse Practitioners to the Financial Support You Need

As nurse practitioners (NPs) are securing their place on the front lines of health care, the American Association of Nurse Practitioners® (AANP) is here with the funding opportunities you need to continue to advance the NP profession and enhance patient care. From scholarships and grants to research awards and external funding information, AANP members have access to a host of opportunities that open doors to a world of knowledge and educational experiences.

“It is my honor to be selected as a recipient of the 2023 AANP Scholarship Award. In addition to the prestige conferred as an award winner, the scholarship funds will contribute to my pursuit of an advanced degree as an FNP, thus increasing my career potential and allowing me to serve as a trusted healthcare provider in my community.”
