Minority Nurse Scholarship Program

Minority Nurse Scholarship Program

Nurses will always be valuable members of any health care team, regardless of their educational backgrounds. Yet, the baccalaureate and master's degrees in nursing may offer the most professional opportunities.

That's why Minority Nurse offers an annual scholarship to help outstanding nurses of color complete their studies toward a Bachelor or Master of Science in Nursing. To date, we have awarded more than 40 students over $35,000 in scholarships, honoring their commitment to the profession, academic excellence, and community service.

We are currently accepting applications for our 14th annual scholarship competition, consisting of two $1,000 awards and one $3,000 award. Scholarships will be paid in summer 2013 for the fall 2013 academic term.

Offset printing is a widely used printing technique where the inked image is transferred (or "offset") from a plate to a rubber blanket, then to the printing surface. When used in combination with the lithographic process, which is based on the repulsion of oil and water, the offset technique employs a flat (planographic) image carrier on which the image to be printed obtains ink from ink rollers, while the non-printing area attracts a film of water, keeping the non-printing areas ink-free.
