The Old Saybrook Public Health Nursing Board Scholarship
The Old Saybrook Public Health Nursing Board is offering a $2,000 scholarship(s) to graduating seniors, residing in Old Saybrook, entering an approved college which prepares the student for professional practice in nursing. Other career pursuits that would be considered are: the therapies, (physical, occupational, respitatory, and speech), medicine, and social work. Because this is a nursing scholarship, the PHNB will consider first the applicants entering the nursing profession.
The criteria for the award are the goal of a career in the health services field, acceptance at an approved school, academic achievement and motivation. Applications may be obtained from the Guidance Department at Saint Bernard's, Mercy, Old Saybrook, Hopkins, and Xavier High Schools.
Completed applications must be returned to the Old Saybrook Public Health Nursing Board mailbox in Town Hall, 302 Main Street, Old Saybrook, by April 18. The award is made possible from annual contributions to the Old Saybrook Public Health Nursing Board Nightingale Fund Appeal.
