  • American Indian Medical Scholarship
    • The American Indian Medical Scholarship (AIMS) was started by the NSCDA in 1928 to give students of American Indian descent the opportunity to pursue careers in nursing. The students are expected to return to work among their people to help improve health care. Intended originally to benefit females only, the program has expanded to include males, and the career goals now include not only nursing careers, but jobs in health care and health education, as well.
      The current goal for the Oklahoma Scholarship is to grant a $1,500 scholarship each year, as long as the student remains in academic good standing. The scholarship money is restricted to tuition and specific academic expenses.
      For more information and applications, please contact.
