Scholarships at Evangelical

Scholarships at Evan provide support to local students entering the nursing or other profession. Each year, students can submit an application. Their application materials are reviewed by a committee of nurses, healthcare professionals, educators, and administrators who select scholarship recipients based on eligibility and need.

The number of scholarship recipients and the amounts of individual awards will be determined by a Scholarship Committee, as specified in the fund description, with payment made directly to the school of the scholarship recipient’s choice.


Printed applications for nursing and health professions scholarships at Evangelical will be available from the Scholarship Committee through the guidance offices of the high schools in Snyder, Union and Northumberland counties and the Department of Nursing of the Evangelical Community Hospital. Completed applications should be submitted to the Scholarship Committee by April 1. Inquires may be addressed at any time to the Evangelical’s Director of Nursing at (570) 522-2602 or to the Nursing Scholarship Associate Executive Assistant at (570) 522-2804.
