Apparently it's sponsored by our school's graduating nursing class of 2004, on behalf of one of their classmates, who died.
I tried googling the local paper to get more information on this woman's death, but couldn't find anything.
Anyway, it's open to all incoming, first-year nursing students. I've got a 1-in-30 chance of getting it, which is a heck of a lot better odds than any of the other scholarships
or grants I applied for!
