$60,000 in scholarships to be awarded this year!

In case you haven’t heard, here’s the latest: AAMC Foundation will award twelve $5,000 scholarships this year!

Last year, Devra Cockerille, RN, was awarded the Gus & Marjorie Bertliz Charitable Trust for Nursing Advancement & Excellence. She is now halfway through her BSN program – here’s what she had to say about her relationship with her donor and how she is using the money she was awarded: 

“The scholarship meant so much to me. I have the privilege of seeing my donor on a regular basis as I attend classes at the HSP building. It is a great feeling to see him and for him to see me continuing my education with his help. In addition to helping with my books, the scholarship money allowed me to purchase a much needed computer for school work.”

Applications will be available via the Nurses Web site beginning in January. Contact Sandy Fox at sfox@aahs.org with questions.

    Incredible support for nursing education. The requests for grant funding for advancing degrees have accelerated over the last months in the ED and Pediatrics indicating increased interest in professional development and growth. Many thanks to the Foundation for their continued support of Nursing.
