The Vermont Association of Nurse Anesthetists (VTANA) is committed to helping students pursue their careers as CRNAs and to become leaders in the health care profession.
Each year, VTANA provides support for the Jack Neary Memorial Scholarship.
Preference is given to a student from the state of Vermont. Second preference is given to a student from the New England area. Applicants must submit a summary of their goals and objectives for advancing in the direction of pain management, no more than one page long.
To apply for a scholarship, a first-year student must be an AANA member and have completed at least six months of courses in an accredited CRNA program by the application deadline date. Second-year students must have completed at least one year of courses in an accredited CRNA program by the application date. There is no financial aid available through the AANA Foundation for those entering a nurse anesthesia program. For more information, download the AANA Foundation Scholarship Program Flyer.
