The Winona Health Foundation is taking applications for the Phyllis McClenathan scholarship for individuals committed to providing care at Winona Health.
It's a $1,000 award available to an individual who is in the final one or two semesters of completing his or her two- or four-year nursing degree. The scholarship recipient must be from within a 60-mile radius of Winona or attend a post-secondary school within the designated area, or be a current Winona Health employee.
Phyllis McClenathan was a long-time nurse in Winona Health's Family Birth Center who passed away after a long battle with cancer. In 2006, her husband, Dean, and their children established a nursing scholarship in her name through the Winona Health Foundation.
Applications for the Phyllis McClenathan Scholarship are due Wednesday, March 15, 2017.

Carol Hill Scholarship applications are due Wednesday, March 15, 2017.
