The Sue Holloway Memorial Scholarships

Fostering the Advancement of End-of-Life Care
This annual award program was created out of love for those who desire to further their education. It is designed to honor and support nursing and nursing assistant students who will incorporate end-of-life care philosophies into their practice, regardless of their specialty.

Background
The Sue Holloway Memorial Scholarships honor Sue’s commitment to education, her love of nursing and her dedication to helping others achieve their goals with a little help from their community. As a Registered Nurse who earned her degree while raising two children and helping her husband get his new business off the ground, Sue understood the importance of community and support from others. She also believed that education can change lives. Access to an education and to a career in nursing should not be foreclosed simply because a person cannot afford it. Clarehouse and the Holloway family are committed to supporting those who have a dream of becoming a caregiver, particularly in this time of unprecedented need for nurses and other healthcare professionals.
