Illinois Nurses Foundation
The Sonne Scholarship is awarded each year to students working toward their initial nursing degree. The funds awarded vary from year to year. The Sonne Scholarship supports students who demonstrate strong leadership, academic and professional skills. Many of the past recipients have maintained membership in their professional organization and have mentored other students to do the same. We are very proud of these students, and look forward to this year's candidates applications.
The Davis Scholarship for Future Nurse Educators was created in 2007. This scholarship, presented annually, will provide a $1,000 scholarship to the recipient. Students who demonstrate strong academic ability, and desire to become nursing faculty can apply for this. The recipient must agree to serve as nursing faculty in Illinois for a minimum of one year after completing their education.
