4th VP – Edith Cavell Nurses Scholarship Fund
In her first year on the board of DCMSAF, Angie accepted the job of managing one of the most cherished projects of the organization. The Edith Cavell Nursing Scholarship Fund was created in 1954 to offer financial support and professional mentorship to students with the understanding that best practice in medicine requires exceptional bedside nursing to achieve clinical success. Because of the academic requirements in order to apply for this scholarship, it is considered a prestigious one to receive. The applicants have to be accepted by or enrolled in the baccalaureate program at either Baylor College of Nursing or TWU College of Nursing. They have to maintain a cumulative 3.0 GPA as a full time student taking at least 12 credit hours of course work per semester. The trustees of the Fund select the candidates who become the Edith Cavell Scholars from a large pool of applicants in the Fall and Spring semesters.
