Priority is given to current members of INACSL and first time attendees. Recipients will be recognized at the INACSL business meeting held at the annual conference.
Scholarship applications are reviewed by members of the INACSL Scholarship Committee. The selection of scholarship recipients is based on submitted documentation that provides evidence of contributions that advance simulation in nursing.
