2020 WA Affiliate Annual Meeting Scholarships
Each year the WA Affiliate has awarded scholarships to support registration and travel expenses towards attending the ACNM Annual Meeting. The affiliate supports attendance to the annual meeting to increase the number, quality and diversity of leaders within the affiliate.
With the recent changes to the ACNM Annual Meeting due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the scholarship application deadline has been EXTENDED until April 24th. We hope this provides more opportunity for midwives and student midwives to attend the now all virtual annual meeting.
Originally, the WA Affiliate was going to award 6 scholarships of $1,000.00 each. However, now that the virtual meeting is happening, the price of registration will likely decrease. This means that the scholarship amount is to be determined, but will cover the cost of the virtual meeting in it's entirety.
All applicants are judged on academic excellence, financial need and leadership potential criteria. The scholarship categories are as follows:
Student Midwife of Color (SMOC): 2 scholarships will be awarded to students who identify as a student midwife of color, currently attending an accredited midwifery education program.
Student Midwife: 3 scholarships will be awarded to student midwives who are currently attending an accredited midwifery education program.
Certified Midwife/Certified Nurse Midwife: New this year! 1 scholarship will be awarded to CM/CNM licensed in WA state who has demonstrated leadership potential within the affiliate and has financial need.

Applicants may apply for more than one scholarship, however they will only be considered for one award.
