External Funding Opportunities

Widening Access to Higher Health Care Education

Health care professionals like nurse practitioners (NPs) are essential members of our communities — and education for the next generation is more important than ever as demand continues to rise.

Beyond AANP’s Grants & Scholarship Program, many other opportunities exist to connect students in need with funding to help them complete their education and begin a career as patients’ partner in health.


NP students can figure out what types of loans they have by either calling the Federal Student Aid Information Center at 1-800-4-FED-AID, logging in to their studentaid.gov account or by checking their credit report.
