What Is Marsha's Angels?
Marsha's Angels is a scholarship fund honoring the memory of Marsha Yarnell and her more than 30 years of nursing. For her last 22 years, Marsha was a labor & delivery nurse in Wichita, Kansas. She was an inspiration to family, friends and co-workers.

Who Are We Looking For?
Successful scholarship applicants will demonstrate the desire to share Marsha's love for helping others and for quality patient care.

What Are The Qualifications?
Qualified students
will have completed all prerequisites and be ready to enter the first year of an accredited two-year nursing program. Students in a four-year BSN program will have completed the first two years of general studies and pre-requisites and be ready for the final two years of nurses training. A student who will be taking part in a qualified program in the fall of 2017 may submit an application as soon acceptance to that program has been established. Applicants eligible for the 2017 scholarship will be graduating in the spring of 2019

Where Should You Live?
Applicants living in Sedgwick County, Kansas or one of the surrounding counties may use the scholarship to attend an accredited nursing program anywhere in the United States. Those living elsewhere in the United States may use the scholarship to attend an accredited nursing program in Sedgwick County, Kansas or one of the surrounding counties or

How Long Does It Last?
After receiving a scholarship for the first year of a nursing program, a student who maintains qualifications for that program will be eligible to receive a scholarship for the second year.

How Big Is The Scholarship?
The amount of the scholarship depends the funds available. So far we have had the opportunity to award over $50,000.00 in scholarships. Our most recent scholarships have been $2000.00 per year for each student.

What If You're Changing Careers?
All qualified students, regardless of age, are encouraged to apply. (Our Angel No. 3, Melissa, was in accounting for 25 years before choosing a nursing career; Angel No. 4, Alyson chose a career in nursing after having obtained a degree in business and working in an office management position for several years.)
