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.)
How Do You Apply?
You can access the application form by using one of the links below. A student is welcome to submit an application as soon as he or she has been notified by their school of acceptance into that school's program. To be eligible for review by the selection committee for the fall semester of 2017, an application submitted by mail must be postmarked no later than June 30th, 2017 and received no later than July 7th, 2017. An application submitted by email must be received no later than June 30th, 2017.
(While we would like to do more, our resources allow us to provide scholarships for only the "fall-spring" semester format of a traditional two-year program. Students attending on a "spring-fall" schedule or those attending an accelerated program do not qualify.)
If you know of someone who will be preparing to enter a qualified program in the fall of 2017, please pass along information about Marsha's Angels.
If you have any questions, please email the Committee Chairman.
