Martha Foecke Memorial Nursing Scholarship

Published Date2\25\2013
Applications for the Martha Foecke Memorial Nursing Scholarship are currently being accepted. The scholarship was established in 1998 by the children and friends of Martha Foecke to perpetuate her strong love for education and to build a lasting legacy in her honor.

Priority will be given, on an equal basis, to the following categories of eligible students: (a) graduating seniors of all high schools in Cedar County and Crofton and (b) adults who reside in Cedar County interested in pursuing a career in nursing.

Martha Foecke always encouraged all of her descendants - children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren - to pursue higher education. She taught by her example of Christian living. As a young girl, she dreamed of becoming a nurse. Her family, noting the rapidly deteriorating health of their mother, and wishing to do something to perpetuate her memory, established the Martha Foecke Nursing Endowed Scholarship fund. Their gift to her, on her 94th birthday was the establishment of this scholarship and since the inception it has been helping students to achieve their dreams at Mount Marty College.

For more information or to apply for the scholarship, please contact the Mount Marty College Office of Admissions at 1-855-MtMarty (686-2789) or mmcadmit@mtmc.edu.
