Students must demonstrate financial need to be eligible for this award. All scholarship awards are made by an Advisory Committee appointed by the State Board of Health. The Office of Minority Health and Health Equity (OMHHE) of the State Health Department serves as the staff element to the Advisory Committee and plays no role in the determination of scholarship recipients. The guidelines for determining scholarship recipients are established by the Advisory Committee and are based on scholastic attainment, financial need, character, and adaptability to the nursing profession.
