Hospital seeks nursing scholarship applications


RUMFORD — Rumford Hospital is seeking applications for the annual Peg Blouin Nursing Scholarship.

The $1,250 scholarship will be awarded to a new nursing student, who has been accepted into either an associate’s or bachelor’s degree program. Nursing students at any stage of life are encouraged to apply. The scholarship recipient will be chosen by the Rumford Hospital Nursing Leadership Committee.

Peg Blouin established the Peg Blouin Nursing Scholarship in 2009, upon her retirement from Rumford Hospital, after 42 years as a registered nurse. As a recipient of the Auxiliary Scholarship, which enabled her to earn her nursing degree, Blouin expressed a wish to give back to the community through her scholarship.

All of the applications must be received no later than May 17 for consideration.

FMI: 207-369-1232.
