The Daily Record and recognition sponsor Keswick are offering a Leading Women scholarship of $2,000 to honor a student who is majoring in/pursuing a degree in public health, nursing, geriatrics or a health-related major/degree.

To qualify, the student must attend a Maryland four-year, fully accredited, degree-granting college or university and should be a junior or senior majoring in one of the fields listed. Nominations are open until July 13.

The scholarship winner will be selected based on the following criteria:

● A successful student;

● Takes on leadership roles in her community, preferably related to health and/or geriatrics, and;

● Demonstrates a commitment to inspiring change in a health-related field.

If your institution has a candidate who meets those criteria, we welcome the submission of her name so she can be considered for this honor. Only one name may be submitted per institution. Please send the candidate’s resume and at least one, but up to three, reference letters that speak to all three of the criteria listed above.
