The Peg Blouin Nursing Scholarship was established in 2009 upon Ms. Blouin’s retirement from Rumford Hospital, after 42 years as a registered nurse. Having been a recipient of the Auxiliary Scholarship, which enabled her to earn her nursing degree, Ms. Blouin expressed a wish to give back to the community.
A $1,250 scholarship will be awarded to a new nursing student that has been accepted into either an Associate or Bachelor program. Applications are encouraged from new nursing students at any stage of life. The recipient will be chosen by the Rumford Hospital Nursing Leadership committee.
Interested individuals should contact the Rumford Hospital Nursing Secretary at 369-1232 for applications, scholarship guidelines and additional information, or download application here . Applications must be received no later than May 17, 2017 for consideration.
