About the Scholarship
The Albert & Nellie Heavener Nelson Scholarship Fund will be awarded to five nursing students of Eastern West Virginia Community and Technical College. Each scholarship of $1,000 will be awarded to the students in the form of a waiver from Eastern’s Foundation to be used for tuition and books incurred as a result of enrollment at Eastern. The scholarship is renewable for the length of the program, provided that the students maintain 3.0 grade point average and have completed (2) volunteer service in the local community for which written verification from the source has been received. The volunteer service must be approved by Monica Wilson or designee.
The donor will give first choice at the scholarship to students that are low income and from Grant, Pendleton, or Hardy counties. If no eligible applicants exist from those counties, then it will be awarded to students in the surrounding counties in West Virginia.
Upon completion of the Nursing Program at Eastern West Virginia Community and Technical College, recipients are highly encouraged to serve for two years in a medical facility (i.e. nursing home or hospital) in the region.
All applications for the Albert & Nellie Heavener Nelson Scholarship must be submitted by the first Friday of August each calendar year. A scholarship review committee will make the final selection and award determination.
