Charlotte Grace Memorial Scholarship
Charlotte Grace was a dedicated School Nurse and active member of our organization for many years. She served on the NYSASN Board of Directors as Zone Coordinator from 1990 until her death in 1993. Her appreciation for and commitment to education was exemplified by the attainment of a bachelor’s degree in 1951 and, just prior to her death, a master’s degree in elementary education/computers.
The New York State Association of School Nurses is proud to offer the Charlotte Grace Memorial Scholarship to interested and qualified members of NYSASN. Our intention is to award two scholarships in the amount of $1,000.00 each. One would be awarded to a bachelor’s degree candidate and the other to a master’s degree candidate or to a candidate working toward an advanced degree (beyond the master’s level).
The scholarships are presented at the Annual Conference.
