The Flower Hospital McKesson endowed scholarship is designed to provide financial and professional support for Master of Science in Nursing/Nurse Anesthesia Program students who demonstrate academic merit and financial need.

Awards will be granted annually to two first‐year and two second‐year students. Recipients will be chosen on the basis of cumulative GPA in the Nurse Anesthesia Program, financial need, professionalism, and either a written essay (1st year students) or SEE score (2nd year students).

To be eligible for consideration, applicants must be actively enrolled in the MSN/NAP program at Lourdes University and in good academic standing. Students who receive the scholarship during their first year in the program are eligible to apply for it the following year.

Eligible students should complete the form below by November 1. Applications received after November 1 will not be considered.

In addition, recipients are expected to participate in an annual event, as determined by ProMedica Health System, and will be assigned a designated ProMedica representative, who will serve as a career mentor while the students are in the program.

Scholarship recipients may also be contacted by the Lourdes University Relations Department and Graduate School for press release information.
