I am delighted to be able to tell you about our Legacy Scholarship. Tacoma General Hospital School of Nursing was founded in 1895 and was the first School of Nursing in Washington State. Even though the School of Nursing closed in 1980, the Alumnae have been very active and want to continue helping those involved in nursing today. We first started offering scholarships to senior RN students in 2002. We have given away many scholarships in the last several years. We will be finalizing our funding availability for this year by the first part of April.
Please pass this opportunity on to your current senior RN students or those that will be seniors by this fall. We do appreciate that some programs graduate their seniors in the spring, some at the end of summer, and some in the winter. We would just like to focus on those students that have already made it through the initial hurdles of their nursing program and are focused on graduating on or before August 2016.
The scholarships may be used for whatever needs the students deem important. However, there may be some federal taxes that are applicable if the scholarship is not directly submitted to your college. Please have the applications returned to me by March 15th. If you or your students have any additional questions, please feel free to contact me. I can be reached at any of the numbers listed below.
