Who Was Wesley Watkins?

Wesley Watkins

The BONENT scholarships are named in honor of Wesley Watkins. He was a dialysis technician who served on the BONENT Board of Directors for over ten years and Secretary/Treasurer.

Wesley Watkins International Grants

BONENT offers grants of $250 per applicant (maximum of two/per year). The grant will be awarded exclusively to prospective applicants for the BONENT certification examination who reside in underprivileged countries as defined by the World Bank and have difficulty paying for the exams. We will provide grants only to individuals that presently work in the field of nephrology for at least one year and their work records can be verified. BONENT will apply the grant to the cost of a BONENT exam.
