Open to all currently enrolled nursing students across the country, the Undergraduate Scholarship Program awards scholarship funds based on a set of criteria established by the sponsor of the scholarship. These scholarships typically reflect a specific area of specialization within the nursing profession such as oncology, critical care, or emergency nursing or a certain population of the nursing profession that is often underrepresented. Funding is up to $10,000 per academic year.

Our Race to Health Equity Diversity Nursing Scholarships
2020 showed us, more than ever before, that having well-trained and well-supported nurses is key to the health of our society. However, in a country with significant racial health inequities—the need for well-equipped nurses is especially heightened in communities of color.
One way that Johnson & Johnson is working to eliminate health inequities for people of color is by investing in creating a diverse healthcare professional pipeline, including increasing BIPOC representation among nurses.
As part of Johnson & Johnson’s Our Race to Health Equity initiative, over $500,000 in scholarships were funded through the Foundation of the National Student Nurses Association. We were proud to provide scholarships to 67 Black, Indigenous and People of Color (BIPOC) students this year. These students will play a key role in creating a world where health equity is a pillar of our society and our healthcare system. The scholarships are one part of a multi-pronged strategy to ensure access to high-quality and culturally competent health care for all.
