Canadian Federation of Nurses Unions Scholarship Fund

Application form

The Canadian Federation of Nurses Unions (CFNU) Scholarship Fund was established in 2007 following a resolution passed at the 2007 biennial convention. This $1,000 scholarship is intended to assist students in accredited nursing education programs throughout Canada. It is hoped that students who choose to access this scholarship will show nursing leadership within their provincial nurses’ unions. One applicant will receive the scholarship fund each year.

This is the first year BCNU is offering the scholarship fund following BCNU formal return to CFNU, Canada’s largest community of unionized nurses, in 2023. CFNU is currently made up of nine provincial nurses unions. Since 1981, the federation has advocated for key health priorities and federal engagement.
