Nursing Student Awarded WCA Scholarship

RELEASED: Sept. 30, 2009

EAU CLAIRE — University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire senior Megan Gleason, a nursing major from Eau Claire, received a Wisconsin Counties Association Group Health Trust scholarship at WCA's annual conference Sept. 14 in La Crosse.

Scholarship recipients were selected by an independent panel of current and former educators based on scores received in the following categories: future goals and career plans, grade point average, community involvement, quality of the applicant's writing and a letter of recommendation.

The Group Health Trust scholarship targets full-time juniors and seniors pursuing careers in health services fields. Additionally, the applicant or the applicant's spouse, parent, grandparent or guardian must be an employee of a GHT member. The program was established to award up to $10,000 in scholarships, with $1,000 awards going to technical college students and $2,000 awards going to four-year college students.

This was the second year of the GHT scholarship program, which is expected to continue annually.
