|Amount||One award of $1,100.|
Awarded to a first generation college student who has been accepted into the nursing program. Preference should be given to those students with strong academic records who show great promise to be outstanding nurses. However, if there are applicants with great promise who have encountered academic difficulties outside their control, they should be given consideration for the award.
Recipients must demonstrate financial need.
It is the donors' intent that if the first recipient continues to make good academic progress through the nursing curriculum and continues to have demonstrated financial need, the scholarship may be renewed for the recipient until he/she completes his/her undergraduate nursing degree. Eventually, as the scholarship endowment grows, a second scholarship may be awarded.
