The AAMC Foundation will award eighteen $5,000 scholarships this year! Applications are now being accepted, more info here. Deadline to submit is February 13, 2013.
Here’s how Becca Burnett, BSN, RN, a staff nurse on Labor and Delivery, benefited from her scholarship.
“I have used the scholarship money for my tuition at Walden University. It has been extremely helpful in continuing my education without a huge amount of financial burden. This scholarship is allowing me to further my education, better my practice, and give back to AAMC through my work.
“In May I had the honor of receiving the Shirley Wheeler Nursing Scholarship. I thoroughly enjoyed meeting and getting to know Tony and his daughter, Megan, at the Nurses Dinner. They were able to give me a glimpse into the woman they loved so much, which made receiving a scholarship in her name all the more special. The words ‘thank you’ don’t seem to cover how extremely thankful I am adequately… but I’ll try.
“To Tony and the rest of the Wheeler family – Thank you for donating to AAMC – the hospital that was so important to your wife and mother, as she was to this facility. Thank you for believing in us! Thank you for giving me the opportunity to better myself and my nursing profession. And thank you for the countless encouraging cards you have sent me along the way. You are so appreciated – for your tireless volunteer work at AAMC, your scholarship donations, and for being your smiling, encouraging self! Thank you!”
