Streamlining Awards, Grants, and Scholarships

Learn how you can prepare your application early and read more about the new features coming below.

New Features

How To Apply

Learn how you can apply for an award, grant, or scholarship from the Oncology Nursing Foundation in our new application platform by following the steps below.

1. Register

Click on the "Register" link. Complete the form by entering your first name, last name, email address, and preferred mailing address.
Note: It is recommended that you use the same email that you use for your ONS account if you have one. 

2. Login

Find the award, grant, or scholarship you wish to apply to and log in with your email and password.

3. Create

Create your online application, ensuring that all of your information is correct.

4. Save

On completion, save your application as FINAL. Download and print a copy of your application for your records by clicking on the download icon in the Application Summary section in the right column.
Note: If an update is required before the Call for Applications period, you can make the update and resave it as FINAL. 

Points to Remember

It is recommended that you use your time wisely by getting a head start on your application by collecting any additional required items for it. This includes items such as the name and email address of someone writing a letter of recommendation. Having to interrupt your progress to find information can delay your application and cause you to miss a submission deadline. Your responses should be of good quality, in terms of grammar, punctuation, syntax, conciseness, and ability to answer the question. Use a free tool such as Grammarly to ensure proper spelling and sentence structure.
