2018 Woodard Nursing Scholarships Available
The Molly C. and Larene B. Woodard Nursing Scholarships for undergraduate Louisiana nursing students have been offered since 2009 and are administered by the Louisiana Nurses Foundation (LNF). We are indebted to the legacy and estate of Mr. E. Scott Woodard for providing over 80 scholarships to date. These scholarship awards are based on eligibility and financial need. Students must be attending a state approved school of nursing of their choice that prepares students for initial licensure as Registered Nurses. Students must have completed at least their first clinical direct patient care nursing course and hold a minimum 3.0 cumulative GPA to apply.
Scholarships will be distributed based on availability of funds.
Awards are administered to fund the recipient’s remaining length of the clinical period of their nursing program. The awards are for $5,000 per year while the student is enrolled full time: $2,500 for each semester OR if enrolled in a quarterly system, funds are equally divided among the quarters. Payments are made directly to the recipient’s school by the LNF beginning Fall term, 2018. Funds shall be used to pay required academic expenses only. Complete scholarship information and application forms are available at: www.lsna.org Students are encouraged to follow directions carefully as incomplete applications will not be considered. The hard copy application deadline is FRIDAY, June 15, 2018. Applications will be reviewed and processed with timely notification of acceptance, or non-acceptance, directly to recipients.
