The St. Luke's Alumni Association is accepting scholarship applications for the 2016-2017 academic year.

The Alumni Association will award several scholarships to college students who have been attending college in pursuit of a degree in the nursing field, whether an associate degree, a baccalaureate, a master's degree, or a nurse practitioner program.

An applicant must be in good standing and have completed at least one year of college in a nursing program by the end of the current academic year.

These scholarships are funded by members' dues, donations, and bequests.

Although relatives of dues paying members of the alumni are given preference, this is not a prerequisite, and other nursing students are encouraged to apply.

For further information and/or an application form, contact Linda Vuillemot Murphy at 413-499-0278 or

The deadline for submission of applications is May 31.
