THE LADIES BOARD NURSING SCHOLARSHIPS
The Ladies Board scholarship program was established in 1959 to award supplemental funds to worthy nursing students. Since that time The Ladies Board has awarded nearly 1100 scholarships, totaling over $1,500,000. As the program has grown, so has the quality and diversity of applicants.
This May 55 students received nursing scholarships for a total amount of $105,500, including a $3500 scholarship in memory of Ladies Board member Carolyn Clark. Carolyn was a member of the Scholarship Committee and chairman of the Lights of Love Remembrance Committee, whose sole purpose is to raise funds for nursing scholarships. The winner of this one-time award is Catherine Williams, a ten-year nurse in Inova Loudoun’s ICU.
Award recipients are enrolled in LPN, RN, BSN and MSN programs at 27 different schools. This includes students at Monroe Technology Center, which has received support from The Ladies Board for more than 25 years. Awards range from $1000 to $2500, plus the Carolyn Clark Memorial Scholarship for $3500.
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 2017. 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 email@example.com .
