Hamling Family Nursing Scholarship Fund

Established 2010

The Hamling Family Nursing Scholarship Fund was created as a memorial to Kathleen Hamling by her family.

Scholarships from the fund are reserved for students entering the field of nursing who are residents of the Community Foundation’s service area.

Graduating high school seniors, undergraduate students or graduate level students are eligible to apply for these awards.

Students must attend an accredited institution of higher education on a full-time basis for the purpose of attaining a degree in nursing, such as an Associate Degree in Nursing (ADN), a Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) or a Master of Science in Nursing (MSN).

As a first-generation college student from a low-income family, I was worried about how I was going to pay for books and supplies. This scholarship will allow me to focus more on my studies instead of worrying about how to afford college. I am working to not only create opportunities for myself but to motivate future generations. Thank you so much for helping me along this journey!

Thank you very much for supporting my college education for these four years. I will never be able to repay you for the opportunity that this scholarship has given to me.

…you can always start small, even $25 can make a difference. Remember we can’t take our money with us. Even if it’s just your gift of time. Volunteer and get involved.

A community foundation is a donor-driven organization that helps donors custom-design funds that reflect their charitable interests. Through the years, grants from these funds have made a significant impact on our local communities.

President Emeritus

Being a part of the Community Foundation scholarship committee is the highlight of my year. For many, a scholarship from the Community Foundation is the reason they are able to continue reaching for their dreams and changing the future of our world. I hope each recipient knows just how inspirational they are to those of us who are lucky enough to read their stories.

We chose the Community Foundation because of its reputation. It’s well known, established and we can trust them to do the job for us.
