Scholarships and Grants for Male Nursing Students

    • Being a male in the nursing field means that you are in a minority in your field. Because male nurses are less common than female nurses, you may be entitled to several special scholarships and grants. With a plethora of nursing scholarships out there, it can sometimes be a little difficult to sort through them and find those specifically designated for male nurses.

    AAMN/Johnson & Johnson Scholarship

    • This scholarship is provided by the American Association for Men in Nursing, in conjunction with Johnson and Johnson. It provides $1,000 to those candidates that they feel best fit the qualifications for the scholarship. If you are a male pre-nursing student who is in an undergraduate program that will lead to qualification to take the NCLEX-RN test, or a registered nurse in a graduate nursing program or allied health nursing program, you can apply to receive this scholarship. Checking the AAMN website regularly will inform you of when applications are open for this scholarship.
