Hear From Our Scholars
NEF’s Circle of Scholars
NEF Circle of Scholars, a formal network among NEF scholars was created in 2016 to serve as a communication platform for the thousands of nurses who have been recipients of NEF scholarships. We hope past NEF scholars will regularly update NEF on their accomplishments as nurse leaders so we can share their successes via our NEF Web Site, on Facebook, and on Twitter. We also hope that as the NEF scholars continue to advance in their nursing careers they will remember the next generation of nurse leaders and become lifelong supporters of Nurses Educational Funds, Inc. Please read more about the Circle of Scholars under “Scholars” ‘Circle of Scholars’.
Nursing Scholarships for Graduate Education
Nurses Educational Funds, Inc.

NEF has been in existence for over 100 years! It was in 1912 that the first two Isabel Hampton Robb scholarships were awarded to two nurses, Cecelia Evans and Lisle French. From then on NEF has continued to support nursing professionals motivated to seek graduate degrees. With the support of those who value the critical need for:
- nursing educators
- advanced nurse clinicians
- nurse researchers
NEF, the largest, single, private, professionally endorsed source of funds for advanced study in nursing will continue with this work for the next 100 years!
