Hom Nursing Scholarship

Millie & Ken HomThank you for your interest in the Millie & Ken Hom Nursing Scholarship Program. Ken was looking for a special way to honor his late wife, Millie, a true pioneer for nursing in eastern Montana. In 2005, he established a permanent endowment with the Holy Rosary Healthcare Foundation to provide nursing students opportunities and invest in the future of healthcare for our region. In the name of the Homs, scholarships are awarded annually to nursing students with eastern Montana ties.
