The Judy Moore Memorial Scholarship Endowment Committee is accepting scholarship applications for the 2014 year. The endowment is an affiliate of the N.C. Community Foundation.
This scholarship program for nurses was established in 1997 as a memorial to Judy Moore, RN who was killed in a tragic accident in 1996. A resident of Macon County, Moore was an inspiration to both nurses and patients in her role as a Community Health Nurse III and as an OB-GYN Nurse Practitioner. Since the first award in August 1998, the scholarship has been given to 28 individuals (some have been awarded funding more than one year) and almost $29,000 has been issued.
At least $1,000 in scholarship funds will be made available for the 2014 year. The application deadline is Thursday, June 26, for both undergraduate and graduate scholarships. Applicants must have completed their first semester in the nursing program and have met other eligibility requirements.
Applications are available on line via the NC Community Foundation site at www.nccommunityfoundation.org or get additional information by calling Anne Hyder at (828)524-6564.
