Polivka Memorial Nursing Scholarship

Ted and his wife, Lois Schmitz. Two smiling, older Caucasian people. Both have white hair and thin, wire-frame glasses. The man is in a white shirt and the woman in a light blue jacket.

This scholarship was established by Jean "Polivka" Kosmatka (a Williston High School graduate) and her husband Kent Kosmatka.  They set up this endowment with the Coyote Foundation to create interest in the nursing field.  With this large scholarship, their hope is to get high school students to enter the field in which they are working.

As an added bonus, this scholarship is renewable for a second year as long as the recipient stays in a college nursing program.

Scholarship amount: $1000 - renewable once
