Graduates of high schools in Niagara Falls, Lewiston, Grand Island, North Tonawanda or Wheatfield have until Friday to apply for the Ruth and William O. Sass Scholarship to encourage excellence in the field of nursing.
Named in honor of Dr. and Mrs. William O. Sass, the scholarship is awarded annually to one or more qualified applicants pursuing a course of study for a bachelor’s degree in nursing. It is funded from interest income assigned to an endowment fund in the couple’s names at the Niagara Falls Memorial Medical Center Foundation.
Other criteria include academic achievement, community involvement and commitment; nursing career, personal and professional references; and the availability of other resources. Upon graduation, awardees are expected to apply for appropriate employment vacancies at Falls Memorial and to accept a position if offered.
For applications and information, contact the foundation at 278-4604.
