Scholarship programs differ in their objectives and requirements, and there are times as well when a program is only intended for a certain group of ethnicities or races or sometimes a specific gender. The Justine E. Granner Memorial Scholarship is a type of scholarship program that is open to the students who are American Indians and other ethnic minorities. To be eligible for the Justine E. Granner Memorial Scholarship, the student is required to have the necessary credentials.
This scholarship program is available to the American Indian and other ethnic minority students who wish to have a career in either nursing, public health or other related fields of expertise. Aside from the already mentioned requirements, this scholarship program gives priority to the students who have graduated high school from Iowa. The most deserving recipients will receive the amount of $1,000 worth of scholarship award, so those who are interested to make an application to the Justine E. Granner Memorial Scholarship must be ready with all the necessary supporting documents as well as a fully accomplished application form on or before the deadline set by this scholarship grant which is on February.
