TxANA Student Scholarships to AANA Meetings

TxANA has budgeted for three (3) student sponsorships for each of the three AANA
meetings, not to exceed $1,500.00 per student, per meeting.  AANA meetings available
for sponsorship are:  

  • AANA Annual Congress (September)
  • Fall Leadership Academy (November)
  • Mid-Year Assembly (April)

Purpose
: To encourage student involvement in political issues that impact CRNAs
and to engender involvement on the state and national levels.

Process :Texas nurse anesthesia students wishing to receive a scholarship will
need to apply to TxANA via the online application form (form below).  Applications
will be processed in the order in which they are received. TxANA will contact your
Program Director for academic/clinical suitability prior to scholarship award.In
selecting recipients for a scholarship, consideration will be given to involvement
in TxANA committees, key contacts (legislative), student track sessions, rotating
school representation, and the order in which applications were received. Students 
receiving a national sponsorship will be passed over to allow greater representation
by more students from Texas.  Every effort will be made to insure that scholarships
are evenly distributed between the programs. The scholarships will be taken in total,
so that if only two students go to one of the national meetings, an extra student
scholarship would be available for one of the national meetings.  This should be
done on an annual basis beginning with the AANA Annual Congress and ending
with the Mid-Year Assembly.  Any money unused at the end of the fiscal year 
(August 31st) will be placed into an account for funding future students scholarships.

Responsibilities:  Sponsored students will be required to attend the meeting in it's
entirety and as a representative of your state association, you will be expected to
dress and behave appropriately. Each student must submit to the TxANA Executive
Director a copy of receipts ($50 or greater) and a reimbursement form in order to
receive funding.Reimbursement forms shall be submitted no later than two weeks
post meeting. Each sponsored student is required to contribute a scholar article 
(at least 500 words) describing their experience or something that they learned
at the meeting for the TxANA NewsLetter.  A photo in a JPG format should also
be submitted with the article.

(NOTE:  If you are not sure about a question on the form, more information is
available if you will "rollover" the question [with your cursor].)
