Kathleen M. Tempel Nursing Scholarship
Memorial Hospital and Health Care Center is offering the Kathleen M. Tempel Nursing Scholarship to a student who has been admitted or plans to enroll in a nursing program leading to an associate or bachelor’s degree in nursing. The scholarship was created in memory of the late Kathy Tempel, former Vice President of Patient Services at Memorial Hospital. The desired outcome is that the recipient returns to the southern Indiana area to work in nursing following graduation. Past recipients may apply annually if they wish. The scholarship is a one-time grant of up to $1,500.
A scholarship application must be completed and returned to the Memorial Hospital Foundation office by March 1, 2014. Applications will be available at the Memorial Hospital Foundation office and online at this link. The winner of the scholarship will be announced by May 1, 2014, publicized in the news media, and have his/her name engraved on a permanent plaque displayed in the hospital.
In addition to the scholarship’s main criterion of pursuing a ASN or BSN, registered nurse designation, the following criteria will also be taken into consideration: the applicant’s desire to practice in the southern Indiana area, financial need, academic records (achievements and honors, grades, SAT scores, and attendance), and community involvement that indicates care and concern for people and the community.
