John F. Stickford Nursing Scholarship
The John F. Stickford Nursing Scholarship was created in 2013 through a gift from the John F. Stickford Revocable Trust. Mr. Stickford was a long-time resident of Hancock County and had a great respect for those working in the healthcare field. It became his desire to help promote excellence in nursing in his community through a scholarship for local nursing students. The scholarship program will be overseen by the Hancock Regional Hospital Foundation (HRH) Board of Directors. The amount of the scholarship will be determined annually, and will cover the cost of the recipient's tuition for one year. Prior recipients are eligible to renew their scholarship for each year they are in the nursing program.
Selection criteria include academic achievement, community or extracurricular involvement and experience in nursing activities. Scholarship recipients will be chosen each year by a committee which will include members of the HRH Foundation’s Grants & Scholarship Committee, as well as the head of the Nursing Department at HRH, or a designated nursing representative. Interviews will likely be conducted with applicants. The funds appropriated for this scholarship will be paid directly to the school of the recipient, and the student is responsible for submitting a copy of their transcript to the Foundation at the conclusion of each semester.
To be eligible for the John F. Stickford Nursing Scholarship, applicants must:
- Be accepted into a Bachelors of Science or Masters of Science program at an Indiana public university. The program must be accredited through the National League for Nursing Accrediting Commission (NLNAC) or Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE). If the recipient does not complete the nursing program, the full amount of the scholarship shall be refunded to the Hancock Regional Hospital Foundation.
- Sign a contract stating that they will work for one year as a Registered Nurse or Nurse Practitioner in Hancock County or Shelby County, preferably at Hancock Regional Hospital or Major Hospital, for each year that they have received the scholarship.
