Nursing Scholarship Opportunities

The JTD Hospital Foundation is proud to offer nursing scholarships for our local high school seniors, current college students, or adults returning to college. Each year, scholarships are awarded to students looking to pursue or continue a career in nursing.

The JTD Hospital Foundation Nursing Scholarship is for graduating seniors, current college students, or adults returning to college to study nursing. This $1,000 scholarship is renewable for the duration the student is studying nursing and maintaining an eligible grade point average.

The Landen Philpot Nursing Scholarship is for graduating seniors, current college students, or adults returning to college pursuing a nursing degree. This scholarship is geared toward nursing students focusing on obstetrics or pediatrics. There are (2) $1,000 scholarships awarded annually. This is not a renewable scholarship; past scholarship winners are encouraged to apply. Being a past winner does not guarantee the award of a scholarship.

These scholarships are available through the community's support, Grand Lake Health System employees, and the annual SIDS Awareness 5K.
