Scholarships and Awards

Every year, several nursing students from Penn win scholarships at both the state and national level. Prizes can range from $250-$10,000.

State scholarships are available through the Student Nurses Association of Pennsylvania. If you apply for a state scholarship you must also attend State Convention. Please email our Legislative Coordinator, Vicky Vo, at if you have questions about state scholarships or convention. If you would like a recommendation from our faculty director, Dr. Spatz, please email her directly. There are also national scholarships available through the National Student Nurses Association. Please use the links below for more information and email Vicky (SNAP’s Legislative Coordinator) with any additional inquiries!
