The Northern California region funds a scholarship to provide an opportunity for a qualified member to attend the SGNA Annual Course. The annual grant is dependent upon that year's budgetary allocations. Eligible applicants must have been a voting licensed nurse or associate of NCSGNA for two years or more, must demonstrate support of NCSGNA's goals and objectives, must currently be employed in gastroenterology. Members of the Board of Directors and those who have received an NCSGNA Educational Course grant within the past three years are ineligible.
