Community Foundation seeks applicants for Angelica G. Muns nursing scholarship

The Community Foundation for Ocala/Marion County has announced that the window to apply for the 2023 Angelica G. Muns nursing scholarship is now open.

Students who are pursuing nursing degrees, as well as post graduate nursing students, are encouraged to apply for the scholarship. Qualified applicants must be enrolled in a certified nursing program in Marion County, maintain a 3.0 GPA throughout their duration of schooling, and continue their career in a Marion County acute healthcare facility.

Since 2016, the Community Foundation has administered the Angelica G. Muns Nursing Scholarship. Muns was a registered nurse and United States Air Force lieutenant colonel who served in World War II.

Muns’ background as a nurse, combined with the healthcare she and her spouse received in Marion County, led to her desire to establish a legacy scholarship to ensure that nursing students would have the opportunity to pursue their dream in the nursing field.
