Funding Opportunity: Improving Nursing Workforce Diversity

HRSA, Division of Nursing, Nursing Workforce Diversity FOA 

The purpose of this FOA is to increase nursing education opportunities for individuals who are from disadvantaged backgrounds, including racial and ethnic minorities that are underrepresented among registered nurses. The program supports projects that provide student stipends or scholarships, stipends for diploma or associate degree nurses to enter a bridge or degree completion program, student scholarships or stipends for accelerated nursing degree programs, pre-entry preparation, advanced education preparation, and retention activities.

Eligible applicants are accredited schools of nursing, nursing centers, academic health centers, state or local governments, and other private or public entities that the Secretary determines are appropriate, including faith-based and community-based organizations, and tribes and tribal organizations.
