The Oregon Nurses Foundation (ONF) is pleased to announce that our scholarship program is back in full swing for 2016! To help address the looming nursing shortage in Oregon, and to ensure that diverse individuals from all walks of life can afford to enter the profession of nursing (or pursue advanced degrees in nursing practice), ONF offers a range of scholarships to help offset the costs of nursing study.

Centennial Education Scholarship

The fund was established in 2004 to commemorate the centennial of the Oregon Nurses Association. Scholarships are awarded to individuals who have been accepted and are enrolled in the nursing program of study. This scholarship is open to students from any accredited nursing program in Oregon and is given out two times per year in $1,000 awards.  A subcommittee of the ONF Board awards the Centennial Education Scholarships.

ONF-Smith Education Scholarship

The ONF-Smith Education Scholarship was established through the contribution of Milton F. Smith of Roseburg. The endowment fund is administered by ONF. Scholarships are typically given in the amount of $1,000 to individuals enrolled in undergraduate baccalaureate or graduate nursing programs. A subcommittee of the ONA Cabinet on Education recommends individuals for award to the ONF Board.
