The Mary Margaret Trant Nursing Scholarship was established in 2021 to assist deserving High School Seniors committed to continuing their higher education within the nursing track. Awarded financial grants may be applied towards the cost of tuition, books, and equipment.

In order to qualify, applicants must be accepted to an accredited nursing school and have a full-time student status. We do not accept applications from students in pre-med programs or other health related fields, or contiuning college-level students. Applicants must be a recent graduate student from one of the following Massachusetts High Schools: Bishop Fenwick, Stoneham, Melrose, Reading, or Wakefield.

The degree to which we are able to provide financial assistance varies from year to year, depending in part on the generosity of our contributors who make donations in the form of memorial gifts, general donations, and proceeds raised through fundraisers throughout the year. Candidates are judged on the basis of personal character and scholastic standing. The deadline for applying is May 1st. Incomplete applications will not be considered.

Thank you for your interest in Mary Margaret Trant Nursing Scholarship.
