Charitable Grants

ARNET provides Charitable Grants for your self-paid continuing nursing education studies.

Current RN and NP members of the College & Association of Registered Nurses of Alberta (CARNA) are eligible to apply to our charity for Charitable Grants for self-paid educational costs that support your nursing practice.

ARNET Charitable Grants are funded through a legacy fund supported by the Province of Alberta.

Please Note: Incomplete applications will not be processed.

ARNET will be making SIGNIFICANT changes to the charitable supports we distribute to Alberta’s RNs and NPs in 2019 & 2020. 

Updates will be posted on our website and Facebook page

Due to the high volume of demand and our charity's limited financial resources, there is NO GUARANTEE of full or partial funding from ARNET

For added security, all educational funding supports distributed from our charity are through direct EFT bank deposit only.
