The Judy Moore Memorial Scholarship Endowment Committee is accepting scholarship applications for the 2012 year. The endowment is an affiliate of the NC Community Foundation.
This Scholarship Program for Nurses was established in 1997 as a memorial to Judy Moore, RN who was killed in a tragic accident in 1996. A resident of Macon County, Judy was an inspiration to both nurses and patients in her role as a Community Health Nurse III and as an OBGYN Nurse Practitioner. Since the first award in August of 1998, the scholarship has been given to 22 individuals ( some have been awarded funding more than one year) and over $20,000 has been issued.
At least $1000 in scholarship funds will be made available for the 2012 year.
The application deadline is June 13, 2012 for both undergraduate and graduate scholarships. Applicants must have completed their first semester in the Nursing Program and have met other eligibility requirements.
Applications are available on line via the NC Community Foundation site.
