A selection committee consisting of nurses and LOHF staff will review applications and identify finalists for interviews that will take place in July 2015. Award recipients will be notified by mail in July 2015 and invited to attend an awards reception held in September. Initial scholarship payments will be made to the nursing schools in August 2015.
