Scholarship Application for Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner (SANE) Training

Scholarships for Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner (SANE) Training are awarded every year to those who seek training and require financial assistance. Applicants must pass a background check to be considered for a SANE training scholarship. Scholarships are available to pay for training registration and meal reimbursement.
