CGEP Heron LogoStudents admitted to the Adult Nurse Practitioner specialty may be eligible for funding from the Comprehensive Geriatric Education Program (CGEP) from Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA). Priority is given to newly admitted students. Graduate Certificate students are not eligible. HRSA requires trainees to have US citizenship, a permanent resident visa, or non-citizen national status.
Awardees are selected based on CGEP application essays and their SoN application materials. The essays address applicants’ financial need and professional goals related to gerontology and work with underserved populations.
Depending on confirmation of continued HRSA funding, we anticipate announcing awards mid-Summer 2013. The traineeship awards are available to both full time (10 credits or more/quarter) and part time ANP students (5-9 credits/quarter) and include funding to assist with tuition, living expenses and health insurance* (*full time trainees only).
Once awarded, trainees are expected to:
- adhere to their planned program of study;
- maintain satisfactory progress at the School of Nursing;
- maintain enrollment and credit load as described above;
- provide information to the SoN and to HRSA during and following the award period relating to academic progress, contact information, clinical venues for training and employment.
The award application deadline is noon on April 22, 2013 for the 2013-2014 academic year (September 2013 through June 2014). Awards are contingent on continued HRSA support. All enrolled and newly admitted ANP students have been sent an invitation by email with a link to the funding application. If you feel you are eligible and did not receive an email invitation, or would like to request further information, please contact program staff listed above.
