Applications being accepted for nursing scholarship

The Northern Chautauqua Community Foundation has announced the Dr. Raja S. Gopalan Registered Nursing Scholarship Fund, established at NCCF in 2011, is currently accepting applications until April 1. To date, this fund has awarded six scholarships totaling $6,000.

Brooks Memorial Hospital and TLC Health Network employees pursuing a Registered Nursing degree are eligible for this award. Family members may also apply. Applicants must complete an application form, submit a brief essay outlining their goals and reasons for pursuing this degree, and provide two (2) letters of recommendation. Motivation, work ethic, and financial priority are the criteria used in the award selection; however, those continuing their career at BMH or TLC will receive special consideration.

Applications for this scholarship are due to Human Resources at BMH or TLC by April 1.
