Eligibility Criteria

Available to students from Wisconsin family farms, who have financial need and are entering or continuing study in nursing. Academic achievement will be considered for the award. Recipients must be attending UW-Eau Claire for the entire academic year; applicants who will be graduating after the fall semester will not be eligible to receive this award.

If there are not a sufficient number of approved applicants from family farms, consideration will be given to students who are from a rural Wisconsin area (not specifically a farm) and meet the other criteria. A rural area is defined as a township, village, or city with a population of less than 20,000 based on the most recent Federal Census.
