THE LADIES BOARD NURSING SCHOLARSHIPS

The Ladies Board scholarship program was established in 1959 to award supplemental funds to worthy nursing students. In the past 55 years The Ladies Board has awarded nearly 1000 scholarships, totaling over $1,300,000. As the program has grown, so has the quality and diversity of applicants.

This May 65 students received nursing scholarships for a total amount of $112,000. Recipients are enrolled in LPN, RN, BSN, MSN and DNP programs at 21 different schools. This includes students at Monroe Technology Center, which has received support of The Ladies Board for more than 25 years. Awards range from $1000 to $2200.

The Gift Shop at Inova Loudoun Hospital, Twice Is Nice Thrift Shop in Leesburg, the Lights of Love Remembrance Program, and the Annual Ladies Board Rummage Sale raise funds for this important project.

Scholarship applications for next year will be available online at www.ladiesboard.org in early January 2015. Applicants must live or work in Loudoun County and be enrolled in or accepted into an accredited school of nursing. For more information contact Mrs. Joyce Biesecker at jeb393@verizon.net.
