African American scholastic scholarship programs are designed provide higher education for African America students with less financial capacity. The reason behind this is that if one decides to pursue higher education, the cost usually is very high. To minimize this problem, scholarships are designed to particularly address this issue among African American community. With specific focus in the field of nursing, some scholarships are being offered for those African American nurses who want to further and gain more knowledge about their profession.
With this in mind, the scholarship program known as the Ethnic/Racial Minority Fellowships is now being offered specifically to African American nurses. This program was authored by the American Nurses Association.
There are some requirements that an applicant must satisfy. The most important of which is that the applicant must have a masteral nursing degree in Psychiatric care. A doctorate degree in the same nursing field is a big advantage.
Other requirements include a Bachelor of Science Degree in Nursing, must be an African American, and graduated with a Grade Point Average of 3.0.
