Margaret Johnson Elmore Nursing Scholarship
The Margaret Johnson Elmore Nursing Scholarship recognizes academically gifted pre-nursing/nursing majors who demonstrate potential for professional nursing leadership and service. Criteria for eligibility are “scholastic ability” first and “financial need” second. Recipients must maintain an Salisbury University GPA of 2.5 each academic year. Priority is given first to full-time freshman pre-nursing majors (recipients must be granted and accept admission to the nursing program for the first semester of their junior year to maintain scholarship eligibility; receipt of said scholarship does not ensure admission to the nursing program); second to full-time junior nursing majors admitted to the nursing program; and third to full-time senior nursing majors in the final year of the nursing program. The committee awards scholarships annually for up to four years. Information is available from the Department of Nursing. Candidates must be from Accomack or North Hampton counties in VA. A HS GPA of 3.0 is required to be eligible as well as academic merit.
