VALPARAISO | The Visiting Nurse Association Foundation is accepting applications for the Lukach Memorial Scholarship.
The Scholarship is awarded each year to assist an individual to advance his or her education within the health care field. It was created by the late Avis Lukach, a past VNA board member and longtime community volunteer.
Anyone employed in the health care field who desires to advance their health-care related education through formal courses, certificate courses, or specialized training may apply for this scholarship.
Applicants must be residents of northwest Indiana and able to provide evidence of application to or current enrollment in an educational program in the health care field.
Guidelines and application forms are available at the front desk at the VNA Administration Center, 2401 Valley Drive, Valparaiso. Applications may also be downloaded from the VNA’s website: www.VNAportercounty.org.
Applications are due to the Visiting Nurse Association by July 31. Previous recipients are not eligible for additional assistance.
Applications for Fall 2013 funding will be reviewed by the Scholarship Committee in August. The amount of the scholarship is determined by the Scholarship Committee. In past years the Committee awarded a $1,000.00 scholarship.
