The Ladies Board of Inova Loudoun Hospital is celebrating 100 years of service to the community and support for the hospital this year. Since it’s establishment in 1959 it has awarded over $1,000,000 to 774 nursing students.
In 2011-2012, $102,300 was awarded to 64 students. Scholarship amounts awarded ranged from $700 to $2,200 and are offered for all levels of nursing, LPN, RN, and advanced degrees.
The Gift Shop at Inova Loudoun Hospital, Twice Is Nice Thrift Shop in Leesburg, the Lights of Love remembrance program and the Annual Ladies Board Rummage Sale raise funds for this important project.
As part of the 100 year celebration, the scholarship committee intends to present an additional award in a larger amount. Applications are currently being accepted and must be received by April 17, 2012.
Students must live or work in Loudoun County and must be enrolled in or accepted into an accredited school of nursing. Applications are available in Leesburg at the Gift Shop at Inova Loudoun Hospital, 44045 Riverside Parkway; Twice Is Nice Thrift Shop, 305 E Market St; the office at Loudoun Nursing and Rehabilitation Center, 235 Old Waterford Road, NW or online at www.ladiesboard.org.
