The Meland Foundation grants funding for scholarships to nurses in the NJ-NY-CT-PA area with BSN degrees wishing to pursue Nurse Practitioner, MSN, and DNP degrees with a pediatric specialty and who share the vision of the Foundation.
The Meland Foundation — founded by a beloved pediatrician who built a successful family medical practice in Northern New Jersey — provides and supports inspirational and informational programs to enhance the ability of families to care for loved ones and to provide hope to patients and their caregivers.
Nursing students interested in applying for this scholarship will need to submit:
- Resume (include two references)
- Transcript (most recent)
- An essay (about 500 words) describing your vision of how to provide excellent care and how you hope to fulfill that dream.
The amount of each nursing scholarship is between $2,000 and $5,000.
Scholarships are granted annually. Click here for a list of past recipients.
We have recently revised our timetable for awards and will consider applications as received on a rolling basis.
