Winona Health Foundation accepting nursing scholarship applications

January 16, 2019 GMT

The Winona Health Foundation is accepting Phyllis McClenathan Scholarship applications accepted through March 15.

The Winona Health Foundation’s Phyllis McClenathan scholarship is a $1,000 award available to an individual who is in the final one or two semesters of completing his or her two- or four-year nursing degree.

The scholarship recipient must 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 who are committed to providing care at Winona Health.

Phyllis McClenathan was a longtime 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 through the Winona Health Foundation.

An application form and eligibility information is available online at winonahealthfoundation.org/scholarships. If questions, call the Winona Health Foundation at 507-457-4394.
