This scholarship was created in honor of Charmaine Roberts, a beloved mother, affectionately called Patsy. 

She immigrated from Guyana and became a nurse as an adult learner. She loved being a nurse and would be pleased to help others reach their dream. The In My Mother’s Name Scholarship will support students of Caribbean descent who are passionate about pursuing a career in nursing.

Any high school senior, undergraduate or graduate student of Caribbean descent who is also majoring in nursing is eligible to apply.

To apply, discuss a specific challenge or health disparity faced by Caribbean communities and explain how you envision using your nursing education to address this issue. Please provide your response in a 2-3 minute video.
