Nursing scholarship applicants being taken

The Northern Chautauqua Community Foundation now accepting applications for the Fonda Sanford Kawski Scholarship.

The Fonda Sanford Kawski Scholarship Fund encourages Central Christian Academy, Dunkirk High School and Fredonia High School students to consider finding purpose in their future endeavors. One of the scholarship’s main requirement is that students must be planning a career working with the elderly or people in need of hands-on care. Students pursuing a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) certification, Licensed Practical Nursing (LPN), or other paraprofessional certifications are eligible to apply.

“I read a book 20 years ago, ‘The Purpose Driven Life’ by Rick Warren. It made me think about how I am to serve. That is what is important to me, and it brings me joy,” says Fonda Sanford. “I am dedicated to be of service and help to others.”

The Selection Committee will consider three criteria when reviewing applications: students must possess a kind and caring nature, have a financial need (strongly considered), and participate in formal or informal volunteer activities (for example, school, church, club, community, and home).

The application is available on NCCF’s website, www.nccfoundation.org/kawski-scholarship or by contacting Victoria Howell-Siracuse, foundation scholarship coordinator. at vhowell@nccfoundation.org or 366-4892. Interested students should complete the application and forward it to the committee c/o NCCF, 212 Lake Shore Drive West, Dunkirk, NY 14048, by April 1.
