Receive a Scholarship to Attend Congress

Since 1981, the Oncology Nursing Foundation Congress scholarships have supported registered nurses interested in improving cancer care by developing their personal knowledge and sharing this new knowledge with others as a result of attending Congress.

In 2019, the Oncology Nursing Foundation awarded more than $120,000 in Congress scholarships. Subsequently, more than 100 nurses were sent to the ONS 44th Annual Congress in Anaheim, CA.
