There are many opportunities to earn scholarships as a member of SGNA. Scholarships are given away based on merit and financial need in most cases, and are available for a variety of purposes. Examples are certification exam fees, annual course registrations, and Associates Programs. Because they are largely dependent upon resources available when annual budgets are formalized, scholarships may change from year to year. Please refer to the appropriate websites for availability, specific requirements, and application processes and deadlines.
Here are a few of the most popular scholarships with links for more information:
- SGNA Membership Dues Scholarships have been established to financially assist SGNA members with their annual membership dues.
- SGNA Associates Program Scholarships have been established to financially assist SGNA associate/technician members and non-members with purchasing the Associates Program.
The ABCGN Recertification Scholarship has been established to financially assist candidates for recertification by contact hours.
