El Pomar offers scholarship for graduate nursing students


Colorado's El Pomar Foundation invites applications for its nurse practitioner scholarship, which is valued at up to $15,000 a year. The award is available to students seeking a post-master's certificate or master's degree in nursing as a Nurse Practitioner (NP). The application deadline is April 1, 2014.

Consideration will be given to San Luis Valley residents who intend to work within the health care community of the greater San Luis Valley (SLV) region as a Nurse Practitioner upon completion of their degree.

Applicants must be enrolled half-time or full-time at an accredited Colorado institution, and must be accepted into an NP program by the time the scholarship is distributed in August 2014. The award amount will be based on the student's enrollment status and other financial aid received. The scholarship will be applied toward 2014-2015 academic year tuition and fees. Notification of scholarship awards will occur by the end of June 2014.

For more information, and to receive a scholarship application, please contact: Dr. Shawn Elliott, Adams State University Director of Nursing, 719-587-8134.
