HANY Scholarships



In the U.S., we are projected to experience a shortage of nurses that will only be compounded by the aging Baby Boomer generation. Such a deficiency would negatively impact our society at large, but would disproportionately affect vulnerable populations. Already-existing health disparities would widen. To counteract the projected shortage and protect our communities from the worst of its effects, it’s more important than ever to encourage individuals to pursue or advance their careers in nursing.

In order for our healthcare system – and more broadly, our society – to be able to address the needs of its people, we need well-trained nurses to counteract the shortage. View links below for more information.

Though their labor often goes unseen, everyday public health professionals go to work at government bodies, research institutions, and nonprofit organizations in order to improve the quality of our lives. Those who study public health are well-equipped to promote community and environmental health, as well as enhance underserved populations’ accessibility to healthcare. If you are interested in a career, job, scholarship opportunities, certification and licensing information in the public health sector you can find information here:
