VFW Auxiliary offers scholarship for nursing students

A nursing scholarship is available through the Ladies Auxiliary to the Veterans of Foreign Wars in Woodbury.

Students must apply by April 1 and be in their final year of nursing school. Applicants must be residents of the state of Minnesota. Nonresidents of Minnesota must be a member of the Minnesota Veterans of Foreign Wars or Ladies Auxiliary and attending a nursing school in Minnesota.

Scholarship funds will be used for the expenses of tuition, books, laboratory and similar fees. These expenses will be paid directly to the school by the VFW Auxiliary Department of Minnesota. Any unused portion of the award is to be returned to the Ladies Auxiliary to the VFW Auxiliary Department of Minnesota.

The primary purpose of this scholarship is to honor Marcella Arnold, who was a loyal and dedicated volunteer VAVS Representative at VAMC Minneapolis for more than 28 years. Arnold passed away Aug. 8, 1980.

Applications may be obtained from the Woodbury Ladies Auxiliary.
