The Edna A. Lauterbach Scholarship Fund

Edna A. Lauterbach was a nurse and respected leader in the home care community who believed that skilled nurses are essential to home care. The Edna A. Lauterbach Scholarship Fund, created in her memory, is supported by the Community Health Care Services Foundation (CHC), and was designed to encourage New York nurses to further their education in home care to address and support the needs of aging New Yorkers who want to remain in their homes and community.

Applications are Now Closed for the 2016 Edna A. Lauterbach Scholarship

The Edna A. Lauterbach Scholarship is offered every Spring to New York State licensed practical nurses (LPN) or registered nurses (RN) currently holding a nursing license in New York State that wish to pursue or further their careers in home and community-based care. The scholarship can be used for tuition, books, specialty training and education, and other education-related expenses.

The 2016 deadline was June 30, 2016. The Scholarship will be awarded in August 2016 in time for the Fall 2016 semester and will be officially presented to the award winner at the Annual Awards Luncheon at the 2015 HCP Annual Management Conference & Exhibition on October 27 at the Hilton Long Island/Huntington in Melville, NY.

Applications for the 2017 Edna A. Lauterbach Scholarship will be open in March 2017.
