Students win Yale-New Haven Hospital scholarships for nursing and allied health fields

Yale-New Haven Hospital recently honored the seven winners of its minority scholarship awards.
The recipients, who live in greater New Haven and are enrolled in a full-time course of study towards a degree in nursing or the allied health field, will receive $2,000 per year award, for a total of $8,000 during their college career.
In 19 years, the hospital has awarded almost $350,000 in scholarships to minority students. To qualify, students must be a member of a minority group as defined by the federal government and enrolled in a full-time course of study towards a degree in nursing or an allied health field, which can include pharmacy, respiratory therapy or X-ray technology.
