Foundation accepting nursing scholarship applications

The Winona Health Foundation is now accepting applications for the Phyllis McClenathan Scholarship.

This $1,000 award is available to any individual in the final year of earning his or her two- or four-year Registered Nurse degree. The scholarship recipient must also be from within a 60-mile radius of Winona, or attend a post-secondary school within the designated area, or be a current Winona Health employee. Priority will be given to individuals committed to providing care at Winona Health.

Phyllis McClenathan was a long-time nurse in Winona Health’s Family Birth Center who passed away after a long battle with cancer. In 2006, her husband, Dean, and their children established a nursing scholarship in her name within the Winona Health Foundation.

Scholarship applications will be accepted through March 15, 2014. Postmark dates will not be considered. Applications are available online here. If questions, contact the Winona Health Foundation at 507.474.3264 or
