The Anne Moncrief Layman Nursing Scholarship Endowment was established in 2016 in honor of Anne Moncrief Layman by her family. Anne became interested in nursing while in high school, working as an aide in Stuart Circle Hospital in Richmond, Va. After graduation, she entered MCV school of nursing, now VCU-MCV, earning a RN-BSN. While there, Anne met and married a medical student. After settling in the Hopewell area, and her children were in school, she had an opportunity to return to the profession she loved. A program at Petersburg General Hospital, now Southside Regional Medical Center, allowed her to update her nursing skills. Anne worked there as a head nurse for 12 years, worked at John Randolph Hospital on the cardiac care unit and then part time as a nursing supervisor.
The scholarship program is available to residents of the City of Hopewell and the following localities: Prince George, Colonial Heights, Petersburg, Dinwiddie, Chesterfield (South of Rt. 288 and East of Ironbridge Road). Student interns working for John Randolph Foundation are eligible to apply; however, foundation trustees, other foundation employees and their immediate families (parents, spouses, brothers, sisters, and anyone claimed as a dependent for tax purposes) are not eligible to apply.
Applicants must be currently attending or express an interest in attending college as a full-time or part-time undergraduate (at least 6 hours per semester) or graduate student to become a Registered Nurse, demonstrate financial need, and have a minimum GPA of 3.0.
