Frequently Asked Questions

  1. Do I have to be a recent DAISY Award Honoree to apply for the scholarship?
    Any DAISY Award Honoree, who is registered with The DAISY Foundation, is eligible to apply for the scholarship.


  2. The application asks for a link to my profile but it isn't there.  What do I do?
    Please contact the DAISY coordinator at the organization where you received your DAISY Award.  They will need to submit your name and information to The DAISY Foundation who will, in turn, get your profile set up.


  3. I work at a DAISY organization but I am not a DAISY Award recipient.  Can I still apply for the scholarship?
    Unfortunately no, this is an extra benefit for DAISY Award Honorees.


  4. How do I know if I have received a scholarship?
    You will receive an email from someone at Careismatic Brands, the parent company of Cherokee Uniforms informing you that you have received a scholarship


  5. I previously applied for a scholarship but did not receive one.  Do I need to apply again this time around?
    Yes, in order to be eligible to be considered for a scholarship you do need to re-apply each year.  Your previous application is no longer available for consideration.


  6. I received a scholarship in the past, thank you.  May I apply for another scholarship because there are other conferences I would like to go to.
    Scholarship recipients are not eligible to receive another scholarship for 2 years after they receive a scholarship.  This is so that we can spread the scholarships among as many nurses as we can.


  7. Is there any restriction on the conference I can go to?
    There are two criteria that scholarship winners must follow when picking a conference:

    1. ​The conference must offer continuing education credits.

    2. The conference must within 12 months of being awarded the scholarship (e.g., scholarship is awarded in January 2021, conference must occur no later than December 2021.)
