This year marks the 26th year of the AANA Annual Congress Sponsor-A-Student Program. This program has been a well-accepted tradition with sponsors and students alike.
For $430, individuals or organizations can sponsor a student nurse anesthetist to attend both the meeting and the Annual Banquet, the social highlight of the meeting. During the Annual Banquet, sponsored student(s) can meet and mingle with those employed in the profession and learn more about the AANA and its worldwide nurse anesthetist advancement efforts.
All student sponsorships made through the AANA Sponsor-A-Student program are randomly selected by computer. Individuals, state associations, schools of nurse anesthesia, and partners in the profession may contribute to the program.
There are three sponsorship options:
The AANA Foundation processes all randomly-selected student sponsorships, which are tax-deductible. The AANA Foundation Board endorses all selection.
To sponsor a student(s) from a specific state or school, please contact the state or school directly to identify students in need of sponsorship. Contact information for schools of nurse anesthesia can be found at CRNA School Search. See State Associations.
The option to Sponsor-A-Student is offered on your personal Meeting Registration page or by visiting the Foundation's secure online donation page and selecting Sponsor-A-Student from the Designation list to make your tax-deductible donation.
