Millersville University recently received more than $4 million from the estate of Liselotte Wehrheim '74 in further support of her endowment for non-traditional undergraduate students pursing a BSN degree.  Specifically, Ms. Wehrheim's scholarship supports students who are facing circumstances making it difficult to complete their BSN degree.  We know that most of our students are dealing with many competing demands on their time - work, school, families, and more - and we are thrilled to be able to use these funds to help as many students as we can!  To apply to receive funds from the Liselotte R. Wehrheim Scholarship in Nursing, simply complete the brief application found at this link.  All students who are over the age of 25 and complete the application will be able to receive funds.  Special consideration for additional funds will be given to those students who are facing significant hardships, such as caring for an ailing family member, loss of job, etc.

Please complete the Scholarship Interest form at this link to apply for these funds.
