The Jane Delano Student Nurse Scholarship

What is it? Jane Delano was the principal organizer of the Red Cross Nursing Service. Thanks to her efforts, more than 20,000 Red Cross nurses served in World War I. She died in France in 1919, while traveling on behalf of the Red Cross. In recognition of her service to our country, she received the Distinguished Service Medal and is buried in Arlington National Cemetery. The Red Cross honors her memory through the Jane Delano Student Nurse Scholarships. This scholarship is a one-time award of $3,000 given to three recipients each year.
