Nurse scholarship

VHI has recently established a Nurse Scholarship program. This initiative hopes to address the reality that financial considerations often deter, if not preclude, qualified and interested nurses and scrub technicians from participating on VHI field programs.

Scholarships are comprised of two features:

  • Waiver of the participation fee ($450), and/or
  • Reduction of airfare expense

The number of and the amounts allocated for nurse scholarships for each VHI field program will be determined by the number of applicants, the staffing needs for each program, and the dollars available.

All candidates must attempt to use every available resource at their disposal before relying upon VHI to assist with program/travel costs.

The principal criterion for selection for a scholarship award is financial need. However, VHI will not request nor review an applicant’s finances, and will not weigh the relative merits of any application by way of comparing the candidates’ financial situations.

To receive a nurse scholarship, an application needs to be submitted to VHI at least one month (30 days) prior to the beginning of the field program on which the applicant wishes to participate.

To submit an application, please use this online Nurse Scholarship Application Form.
