The Chamberlain DAISY Honoree Scholarship; An Unlimited 15% Reduction in Tuition Pricing!
Thanks to the exceptional generosity of Chamberlain University, every DAISY Honoree may be eligible to receive a special tuition rate. This is a gift in appreciation of the work DAISY Honorees do for their patients every day.
Chamberlain’s DAISY Honoree Scholarship offers a 15% reduction in tuition to eligible registered nurses who have received The DAISY Award- past and present Honorees!
The DAISY Honoree Scholarship is available to nurses who have a current, active RN license in the U.S. or in a jurisdiction that is an Associate Member of the National Council of State Boards of Nursing (NCSBN).
Chamberlain’s DAISY Honoree Scholarship is designed to encourage continuing education in the nursing profession and, assuming Chamberlain’s admission requirements are met, may be applied to their:
- RN to BSN Online Degree Completion Option
- RN-BSN to MSN Online Option
- Master of Science in Nursing (MSN) Degree Program
- Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) Degree Program
- Graduate Certificate Program
All scholarships are exclusively administered by Chamberlain University. Additional requirements for all Chamberlain’s scholarship programs apply. Please contact a student services advisor at Chamberlain to apply for The DAISY Honoree Scholarship. For more information visit Chamberlain.edu/scholarships. The application process does require verification of DAISY Honoree status so Honorees should be prepared to present their DAISY Award Certificate, dated and signed by their employer upon request.
We respectfully request DAISY Honorees contact Chamberlain with any questions, not The DAISY Foundation. All scholarship applications must be submitted directly to Chamberlain University following their scholarship application procedures.

DAISY Ambassador Program
Over the years, DAISY Coordinators and Honorees have asked how they can help The DAISY Foundation. DAISY Award recipients are the reason we do what we do, and we are very grateful for your support and involvement. DAISY Coordinators and DAISY Award recipients know the powerful impact of this recognition on Honorees and all who celebrate with them. So we invite DAISY Award recipients and DAISY Coordinators to join our DAISY Ambassador program.
Who are DAISY Ambassadors?
DAISY Honorees and Coordinators who would like to help us achieve our Vision of having The DAISY Award in every healthcare organization that wants it and will do what it takes to make it meaningful for their nurses.
What do DAISY Ambassadors do?
- Share your experiences of receiving or running The DAISY Award with other nurses in the community. This will entail a simple phone call or email to a nurse in your area that is considering bringing the program to her/his organization.
- Provide a quote that we may use in our marketing materials, explaining what receiving The DAISY Award means to you. Again, a simple email will be wonderful - and a photo for our website, too.
- If you are available to do so, spend an hour at our DAISY Display at a nursing conference you are already attending. This is not mandatory, of course. However, if you have the time, we would appreciate your joining us to answer questions, describe your experience, and share your contagious enthusiasm.
You will not be asked to help us raise money.
We welcome your ideas and hope you will consider becoming a DAISY Ambassador. If you would like more information about becoming an Ambassador please contact Erin Ascher firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you are ready to become an Ambassador please complete our become a DAISY Ambassador form.
Spend time with us at conferences
If you attend a nursing conference, please look for our DAISY display and say hello. It will mean so much to us, the Co-founders and staff of The DAISY Foundation to meet you and wish you well in person. Also, if you have some time, you can spend some time with us at our display and meet others who have the program or do not know about DAISY and want to learn more.
Are you a social media user? If so, please visit and “Like” our Facebook DAISY Foundation page to get all of the latest news. There is also a DAISY Award Nurses Group on Facebook which we hope will evolve into a place our Honorees can communicate with each other. Please become a member by sending a request to join. You can also follow us on Twitter at @DAISY4Nurses and check out our Pinterest page where we post fun celebration ideas and unique DAISY displays. On YouTube, there are hundreds of inspiring videos of DAISY Nurses being honored. Just search DAISY Award and grab some Kleenex®.
Thank You! We are so pleased to have you as part of the DAISY family and value the meaningful contributions you make to your patients and their families each and every day!
