The Women’s Health Resource Library is now accepting applications for the 2012 Elaine Hill Memorial Scholarships, given in memory of Elaine Hill, R.N., for many years the beloved nurse at the Milbridge clinic. Two $2500 nursing scholarships will awarded in June, for the 2012-2013 academic year. One scholarship for $2500 will be awarded to a Narraguagus High School graduating senior who plans to pursue a career in nursing. Application forms are available at the guidance office of NHS. The application deadline is May 11.
A second $2500 scholarship will be awarded to a non-traditional student who is planning to enter or already enrolled in an accredited nursing program. Applications may be downloaded from the Women’s Health Resource Library website whrl.org. Look under Programs and Events for the Elaine Hill Memorial Scholarship link. Completed applications are due by May 11.
Funds to support these scholarships are raised from the Elaine Hill Memorial Walk, held each October in Milbridge. Scholarship winners will be announced in June. For additional information, contact the Women’s Health Resource Library at 546-7677 or e-mail us.
