Selection Procedure The Nursing Scholarship Committee reviews the applications and makes recommendations to the dean. They will ensure the awards do not duplicate other nursing scholarship awards and coordinate communication with the financial aid office and recipients. The Committee should consult with the ECSNA advisers during the review process.
Special Notes The annual income of this fund is intended to be used for scholarships. However, if there is an initiative or special project in the nursing program that is seeking private support that the members of the Eau Claire Student Nurses Association feel is a worthy project, the annual income of the fund may be designated to support that special project or initiative. For this to happen, the membership of the ECSNA must approve the project and specific budget commitment by a majority vote. No more than three years of annual income may be committed at a time for such a project. After that, the annual income must be used for scholarships as originally intended.
Thank You The recipient should write a letter of thanks to Gail Hanson Brenner and send it in care of the UW-Eau Claire Foundation.
