The June Gill Nursing Scholarship is offered to an adult or student Grange Member who is in good standing. Selection will be based on the following: verification of enrollment in a nursing program; verification of Grange Membership; and a review of the applicant's career statement, academic records and financial need. Public and private institutions may be attended within or outside New York State. Two $1,000 Scholarships are available annually, and a recipient may receive only one award. The payment will be sent directly to the school after the successful completion of one term, which must be verified in writing.
The New York State Grange was founded in 1873. There are more than 150 local Granges in New York State with a total membership of over 4,000. The Grange is primarily found in rural communities, however some may be found within the limits of the State’s cities. A community where citizens know each other and communicate on a regular basis will run smoothly and work for the total benefit of the community as a whole.
