Have you applied for a nursing scholarship yet? $5,000 could be yours!
AAMC Foundation will award twelve $5,000 scholarships this year! Scholarship applications are now being accepted. Deadline to submit is March 1, 2012.
Here’s another testimony from Tina Wilkerson, RN, who works in the Outpatient Infusion Center (pictured on the right with Commander Vittek). Tina was awarded the Al & Mary Vittek Nursing Advancement Fund in 2011:
“I am currently working on my BSN degree through Drexel University’s online program. Returning to college has put a financial strain on my family, so it has been a relief to receive financial support from the generous donors. With the scholarship, I was able to stay on path with my education goals — taking two classes a quarter and maintaining my 3.5 grade point average. I still have several classes to take before graduating, but the support from the managers, my colleagues, and the administration at AAMC has been fantastic. The foundation scholarship is a tremendous program that helps people like me to reach my personal and professional educational goals.”
