Brian Leahy was an incredible man who sadly passed away from brain cancer, cutting his life short.

Watching a parent or family member go through cancer can be a harrowing and traumatic experience that can take years to overcome. Nurses and other healthcare professionals can be incredibly impactful in helping families cope with a cancer diagnosis, educating people about their options, and ensuring a comfortable passing in severe cases. 

This scholarship aims to honor the life of Brian Leahy by supporting students who are pursuing nursing or who have a parent with cancer.

Any high school or undergraduate student who is a North Carolina resident may apply if a parent has cancer and/or if they are pursuing nursing

To apply, tell us about your experience with your family and how they have handled the diagnosis and/or why you want to pursue nursing.
