Nursing Scholarships

The Brandywine Health Foundation seeks to address the critical shortage of nurses by encouraging Chester County residents to enter the field of nursing by providing scholarship funds, and recognizing those students who excel academically.

To that end, eight nursing awards and scholarship funds benefiting nursing students studying at West Chester University and Immaculata University and the Chester County Intermediate Unit (CCIU) Practical Nursing Program are available. These scholarships are awarded at a special ceremony in April/May each year.

To learn more about how you can establish a fund at the foundation, contact Jill Whitcomb at or 610.380.9080, x103.
