Fred Hutchinson Cancer Center supports the following scholarship opportunities for nurses to grow their nursing practice through education and professional development.
The Rosemary Ford Future of Oncology Nursing Scholarship supports Fred Hutch nurses who are currently enrolled at a university or community college in pursuit of a higher nursing degree. Fred Hutch nurses who are currently enrolled toward a degree in nursing (LPN, ADN, BSN, MN, DNP, PhD) are selected annually for receipt of a $3,000 scholarship.
The Harold and John Steinberg Memorial Nursing Scholarship Fund was established to recognize exceptional caregiving and patient/family support in oncology nursing at Fred Hutch, Seattle Children’s Hospital and University of Washington Medical Center. This scholarship is supported by generous contributions from Howard Steinberg and his family and friends in memory of his father, Harold, and his brother, John. Before his death in 1994, John Steinberg received two bone marrow transplants. Harold had multiple myeloma and passed away in 1981. The scholarship may be used for a nursing-focused oncology conference or for tuition reimbursement toward a nursing degree.
Fred Hutch awards $2,000 each to five non-presenting nurses to attend a national conference each fiscal year, providing an opportunity to experience the atmosphere of a national conference and understand how nurses may contribute with future work.
