"Nursing Scholarship Available to Virginia Students"

SALISBURY, MD--A nursing scholarship for residents of the Eastern Shore of Virginia attending Salisbury State University is now available for the 2001 academic year. The scholarship, in honor of the late Margaret Johnson Elmore, a 54-year resident of Painter, VA, who devoted her life to nursing, is funded by  Elmore’s son, Page, and his wife, Carolyn. The purpose of the scholarship is to recognize an academically gifted pre-nursing/nursing major who demonstrates potential for professional nursing leadership and service. Criteria for eligibility are “scholastic ability” followed by  “financial need.”

Other requirements include: residents of  Virginia’s Northampton or Accomack counties  be given priority; students must have high school GPA’s of 3.0 or greater on a 4.0 scale; have a combined Scholastic Assessment Test (SAT) score of 900 or greater; meets Salisbury State’s SAT admission criteria; and be full-time students entering SSU as a freshman seeking a degree in nursing. The recipient must maintain a 2.5 grade point average each academic year of receipt. Those maintaining a 2.5 GPA each semester will automatically receive placement in the nursing program.

Recipients have the possibility of being awarded up to $3,000 per year for up to four years.

Second and third priority will be given to applicants with the above met criteria who are full-time undergraduate junior or senior nursing majors in the SSU Department of Nursing. Those recipients will be awarded up to $1,000 per year for one to two years as long as scholarship eligibility is maintained.

Recipient selection will be administered by the Margaret Johnson Elmore Scholarship Committee.

For further information about scholarship application and eligibility contact scholarship coordinator, Mary DiBartolo, MBA, RNC, in the SSU Department of Nursing at 410-543-6401.
