If you are interested; wonder if this will be a yearly thing? http://www.capitalcityweekly.com/sto...89888224.shtml

Nursing students committed to practicing in rural Alaska communities can apply for tuition assistance from the David E. Knox Memorial Nursing Fellowship offered by The Alaska Community Foundation.

Deadline for the scholarship applications is March 1. Awards will be made in April. The Fellowship will award up to $2,500 annually to a nursing student who agrees to practice as a nurse/RN in a small Alaskan community for at least one year. Applications are available on the scholarship page of The Alaska Community Foundation's website, www.alaskacf.org.

Knox was a longtime Sitka resident and Sitka Community Hospital nurse. His wife and family created the fellowship in his memory as a way of providing continued support for the rural medical community.
