Margaret Winters’ Scholarship

The Margaret Winters’ Scholarship was established in 2011 to create a scholarship for a Licensed School Nurse, who is working toward a Masters Degree. IASN established the Margaret Winters Scholarship Fund in part from a Memorial fund donated from Rosalie Sherman, who also passed away in 2011. We are in hopes of awarding $1500 each year plus complimentary admission to the next IASN Annual Conference to a graduate nursing student.

The Margaret Winters Scholarship is to be awarded to an Illinois Professional Educator Licensed and Endorsed School nurse in the process of obtaining a graduate degree.
