Hom Nursing Scholarship
Thank 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 opportunities for nursing students while also investing in the future of healthcare for our region. Scholarships, in the name of the Homs, are awarded annually to nursing students with eastern Montana ties. In 2019, a minimum of $10,000 in scholarships will be awarded to nursing students.

- Student has spent at least 12 months of his/her life in eastern Montana.
