National Mammography Day is observed annually on the third Friday in October as part of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
This day serves as a reminder to all women that the best defense is early detection. A mammogram can often detect a problem before there is any outward physical sign. Make sure you get your regular checkups.
There are many scholarships for healthcare majors – here are some new ones for you!
American Indian Nurse Scholarship Program
The American Indian Nurse Scholarship Award Program was started by the NSCDA in 1928 to give students of American Indian descent the opportunity to pursue careers in nursing. The students are expected to return to work among their people to help improve health care. Some students work on reservations, and others find employment in hospitals in areas largely populated by American Indians. Intended originally to benefit females only, the program has expanded to include males and the career goals now include not only nursing careers, but jobs in health care and health education, as well.
The current goal is to grant a $1,500 scholarship each semester, as long as the student remains in academic good standing. The scholarship money is restricted to tuition and specific academic expenses. To meet the financial demands of their education, many students seek additional government grants and subsidies and maintain part-time jobs.
Jane Delano Student Nurse Scholarship
Jane Delano was the principal organizer of the Red Cross Nursing Service. Thanks to her efforts, more than 20,000 Red Cross nurses served in World War I. She died in France in 1919, while traveling on behalf of the Red Cross. In recognition of her service to our country, she received the Distinguished Service Medal and is buried in Arlington National Cemetery.
The Red Cross honors her memory through the Jane Delano Student Nurse Scholarship which promotes nursing as a career and encourages new nurses to get involved with the Red Cross. A limited number of scholarships are awarded each year.
How to Apply
Applications are due in May and applicants are notified in July each year.
The scholarship is available to nursing students (undergraduate or graduate) who have contributed volunteer service to or are employees of an American Red Cross Unit.
Scholarship funds may be applied towards tuition, books and academic fees only. Recipients of the Jane Delano Student Nurse Scholarship and their Red Cross units are notified by the Office of the Chief Nurse. A unit may be a chapter; Humanitarian Services region; Blood Services region; Preparedness, Health, and Safety Services territory; or Service to the Armed Forces station.
