Barbara Acquino Andrésen Nursing Scholarship

The purpose of the Barbara Acquino Andrésen Nursing Scholarship  is to provide a scholarship to a returning nursing student who, like Barbara, perseveres in her/his efforts to become a nurse regardless of the challenges.

The Scholarship is given to a nursing student who in the eyes of the nursing faculty members encompasses the true meaning of what it is to be a nurse, and with a preference for a student who has demonstrated extraordinary dedication, focus, and perseverance in working toward attaining her/his dream to become a nurse regardless of the challenges.  GPA is not a criterion.

The application and selection process will be determined by the nursing department’s scholarships selection committee.  Should no candidates meet the scholarship criteria or be deemed worthy of the scholarship, the scholarship shall be retained to be awarded the following semester or academic year.

Margaret “Peg” Rock Kenyon Memorial Fund*

This endowment honors the memory of Margaret “Peg” Rock Kenyon and, in her memory, funds scholarships for worthy non-traditional students pursuing careers in education, social work, environmental studies, journalism, or medicine. Candidates are older than their classmates and they are contributing to their own educational expenses through part-time or full-time employment. Selection is based on the applicant’s latent potential for achievement and maturity; recommendations of faculty, University or home community members, or peers; and financial need. Recipients shall have a minimum cumulative grade point average of 2.0. Candidates are nominated by the PAT Scholarship Committee and other faculty. As part of the screening process, candidates are required to complete an application. Recipients are chosen by the PAT Scholarship Committee.

Madeline E. Plant Nursing Scholarship *

The purpose of the Madeline E. Plant Nursing Scholarship is to provide support to a nursing student who is in good academic standing, has a demonstrated financial need, is from NH, and, as a first priority, from the Coos or Grafton counties of NH.  If there are no qualified students from those counties, then the scholarship may be awarded to any qualified student from NH.   The selection process will be determined by the PSU’s Office of Financial Aid.  Should no candidates meet the scholarship criteria, the scholarship shall be retained to be awarded the following semester or academic year.

 

 

* Students who would like to be considered for scholarships that identify financial need as a criteria will need to complete the Federal Financial Aid Application before the March 1 deadline.
