"Receiving an MSN scholarship through the Oncology Nursing Foundation will provide me with further assistance in continuing my education. I hesitated pursuing further education after completion of my BSN degree due to the financial commitment and strain on my family, but am honored to receive this scholarship that will help to contribute to attaining a Master’s degree in Nursing and pursuing career goals in Leadership and Nursing Administration. I am extremely grateful to all those who contribute with open hearts to help fellow nursing colleagues and look forward to paying it forward!"

“The Oncology Nursing Foundation 2019 Congress Conference Scholarship provides an opportunity to develop both professionally and socially. I am a junior nurse scientist seeking to improve quality of life among young African American breast cancer survivors. I’m proud to attend the 2019 Congress where mentorship from senior nurse scientists, camaraderie from peers, and continuing education opportunities are in ample supply. This opportunity is truly essential to building a successful research program and career.
