This $2,000 came at a time when I was feeling so overwhelmed, and I'm so grateful for the money.
LANCASTER, Pa. (PRWEB) February 20, 2018
TravelNurseSource.com awarded a total of $4,000 in January to the recipients of the 2017 "Future U.S. Nurse Scholarship."
This year’s scholarship winners are Stephanie Eby and Laura Phillips Warner. Each student received a total of $2,000 toward their nursing education for the 2018 spring semester.
TravelNurseSource.com selected Eby and Warner as the winners after receiving more than 160 scholarship applications. A scholarship review panel of four people spent several weeks critiquing applications and narrowing down the list of applicants. The winners were chosen based on the quality of their applications, such as financial need, exceptional academic standing, and compelling and error-free essays. Eby and Warner wrote brilliant and personal essays describing their desires to become an RN, their plans to contribute to society as a nurse, and the personal struggles they overcame to get where they are today. They are both first time nursing students at accredited universities.
“This $2,000 came at a time when I was feeling so overwhelmed, and I'm just so grateful for the money,” Eby said.
Warner, who suffers from a chronic condition, is also very grateful to receive this scholarship.
"It really helped me because the extra $2,000 allowed me to pay for my health insurance for the year, and that was a big thing I was worried about," Warner said. "This is like a huge thing for me, because that’s something that I can’t lose. It’s something I can’t be without."
TravelNurseSource.com launched the "Future U.S. Nurse Scholarship" in 2017 and the scholarship initiative is part of TravelNurseSource.com’s ongoing efforts to invest in the education and career pursuits of nurses across the country. The website has worked with travel nurses and nursing students for more than 10 years, and last year decided that it really wanted to do something more to help future nurses by starting a scholarship program.
“These two scholarship winners will be the first of many to benefit from our efforts, as we plan to make the scholarship an annual tradition,” TravelNurseSource.com president Oliver Feakins said. “Keep an eye out for details on our 2018 scholarship!”
