2018 Georgia Health Care Association Education & Research Foundation Scholarship Application

The Georgia Health Care Association Education & Research Foundation is pleased to announce that it is accepting applications for its scholarship program for 2018. Administrators and Directors of Nursing are encouraged to share this information with employees who may be interested in applying for a scholarship.

Established in 1991, this program was created to assist nurses to obtain their education and to encourage specialization in long-term and post-acute care. The program is funded by contributions to the annual Scholarship Golf Tournament and donations received throughout the year. This year's annual golf tournament will be held on April 26 at Eagles Landing Golf & Country Club. 

Qualified scholarship recipients are selected by the Foundation and receive funds to aid with expenses incurred during their time of study. Scholarships are available to individuals pursuing a degree that will enable them to work in Nursing as a Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN), Registered Nurse (RN) or Nurse Practitioner (NP).

All application entries are due by May 27, 2018. Click here for additional information and to submit your application online.
