MAOHN Scholarship Award

MAOHN Scholarship Award

Purpose and History
In 1988, MAOHN members Jean Bey, Pat McGovern and Mary Foley co-authored an AAOHN journal article which was awarded the AAOHN Golden Pen Award. The received cash award was donated posthumously in honor of Mary Foley to start the MAOHN Scholarship fund. The MAOHN Scholarship Award was established in 1989 and funded by the MAOHN scholarship fund. The fund has continued to grow from member donations, fundraising activities and other donors. The first award was given in 1990. Since then, MAOHN has sponsored an annual scholarship to one of its members as a way to encourage age members to pursue professional growth and development. The purpose of this award is to provide financial support for education that enhances a MAOHN member's professional development in the field of occupational and environmental health.

The Award
The MAOHN Scholarship Award winner will be recognized during a MAOHN member meeting. In addition, the award winner will be granted up to $500 in monies that they may use during the MAOHN fiscal year to attend future continuing education events.

Scholarship Award winners may participate in multiple continuing education events during their award year with the total reimbursement of these events not to exceed $500.

Any monies not used by the award recipient by the end of the fiscal year will be forfeited back to the MAOHN.
