Blaze a Trail to ONS Congress® With Scholarships From the Foundation


The 49th Annual ONS Congress offers a unique opportunity for oncology nurses and researchers to forge lasting connections and elevate their professional practice. The knowledge and experiences gained are empowering, inspiring you to ignite positive change in oncology nursing and cancer care.  

The Oncology Nursing Foundation can support you as you embark on your ONS Congress journey.  

Since 1981, the Foundation has been awarding ONS Congress Scholarships to RNs committed to enhancing cancer care. Recipients can apply the educational grants of up to $2,000 toward registration fees, travel expenses, and per diem conference costs. 

Receiving this scholarship through the Oncology Nursing Foundation means the world to me! I have been an oncology nurse for seven years now and have always wanted to go to. I love to learn new ways in which to provide the best care for my patients and by going to ONS Congress, I will have that opportunity. I will take back what I learn at ONS Congress to my fellow peers to expand their knowledge as well. Thank you so very much!
