To be considered for a Mary Marshall Nursing Scholarship, an applicant must meet the following criteria:
- Residency in Virginia for at least one year;
- Acceptance or enrollment as a full-time or part-time student in a practical school of nursing in the state of Virginia; and
- Have submitted a completed application form and a recommendation from the Program Director regarding
scholastic attainment and financial need prior to June 30.
Failure to comply with any of the above will cause the applicant to be ineligible for a Mary Marshall Nursing Scholarship. Applicants will be evaluated and ranked by the scholarship committee and the most qualified applicants will be awarded the scholarships.
Conditions of Scholarship
It is important that all applicants fully understand the conditions of accepting a Mary Marshall Nursing Scholarship. These awards are not gifts. Scholarship recipients must agree to engage in full-time nursing in Virginia for one month for every $100 received. Therefore, if a student received $1,200 in scholarship awards, he/she must repay that amount by working continuously in Virginia for 12 months. The award recipient has 60 days from the date of graduation to obtain his/her license. Full-time employment must begin within 90 days of the recipient's licensure date. Voluntary military service, even if stationed in Virginia, cannot be used to repay scholarship awards.
