Florida Colleges Benefit From Nursing Scholarships

The Foundation for Florida’s Community Colleges distributed $273,882 in September for nursing and allied health scholarships, with more than one million dollars awarded since 2006. The Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Florida Endowed Scholarship for Nursing and Allied Health works to increase the number and diversity of individuals going into the nursing and health fields. The scholarships were awarded to Florida’s 28 colleges and matched with support from local communities. Scholarship recipients were selected by the community college where they are enrolled.
