The Paul Felden Memorial Scholarship has been created to honor our beloved Paul, who passed away unexpectedly on October 4th, 2016. He was only 39 years old.
In his early 30's, Paul decided to change career paths and began his journey to become a registered nurse. While enrolled as a full-time student during the day, he continued to work full-time at night, deal with family responsibilities, and all the while helped raise three wonderful boys.
Paul loved being a nurse. It was a difficult job at times, often working nights, weekends, and holidays. He sacrificed much to be of service to others. However, it gave him a sense of purpose, identity, and pride. He finally had a career not just a job.
Who can apply?
We are looking for motivated, hard-working students enrolled in a nursing program located in Northeast Ohio, maintaining a 3.25 GPA or above. The application is now open for the 2023 - 2024 school year.
