Nursing

The healthcare field possesses some of the most vital and impactful occupations in society. Healthcare providers make a substantial contribution to the world by ensuring the prosperity of others. Nurses, in particular, are the backbone of the industry and are irreplaceable when discussing public health.

Unfortunately, in these unprecedented times, there is an expected shortage of the vital profession. The demand for nurses is greater than what can be supplied. Hospitals were short by more than a million nurses in 2022 alone and this is only getting worse as current nurses retire.

To aid our future nurses in their academic careers, this scholarship will support students in Pennsylvania seeking an undergraduate or graduate-level education in nursing.

To apply please tell us why you would like to pursue nursing and how you plan on making a difference in your community in Pennsylvania through your career.
