Eight Missouri Western students received 2020 Nursing Fellowship scholarships from the Mosaic Life Care Foundation.

In honor of Nurses Week (May 6-12), the Foundation announced their commitment to the annual fellowship that will award $10,000 each to up to 10 qualifying applicants. This year’s recipients were chosen from applicants currently enrolled in nursing programs throughout the Mosaic service region, and eight of the nine selected are in Missouri Western’s nursing program.

Following graduation and obtaining a Missouri State Nursing License, each Mosaic Life Care Foundation Nursing Fellowship recipient will be partnered with a professional mentor throughout their first three years of employment with Mosaic, participate in community engagement opportunities and develop clinical and leadership skills in a supportive, hands-on environment.

The scholarships recipients include Jennifer Buch, Kourtney Chaney, Jaileigh Hamlin and Ashley Moeck, all of St. Joseph; Shelbie Gaines, Watson, Missouri; Lauren Hill, Troy, Kansas; Alyssa Hough, Gower, Missouri; and Holly Poppa, Bethany, Missouri.
