UNA marks 40 years with 40 scholarships

This year marks 40 years since the founding of United Nurses of Alberta and in recognition of this milestone, the union is funding 40 nursing education scholarships.

The 40 scholarships of $1,000 will be divided into groups of 10 to be awarded to nursing students in their first, second, third and fourth years of studies at approved post-secondary institutions in Alberta.

Applicants must be related to a UNA member, complete an application form and write a short essay answering the question, “In the last 40 years how has United Nurses of Alberta advocated for its members.”

Preference will be given to applications who have not received a UNA scholarship in the past. Applications for UNA’s Nursing Education Scholarship can be found on the UNA website and will be accepted until Oct. 13, 2017.
