The Bay St. George Chapter was officially dissolved in March 2007. The Chapter transferred all unused funds to the NL Registered Nurses' Education & Research Trust to be awarded in scholarships to registered nurses residing in their geographical area who are enrolled in a nursing degree program. In the event that there are no suitable applicants enrolled in degree programs, applications are accepted for non-credit continuing education programs/events.
One scholarship is awarded annually to an RN from the Bay St. George area. The geographical area of the Bay St. George Chapter is defined in the Chapter's Constitution to include the South Western area of the province starting at Long Point in the District of Port Au Port, east to Gallants and Bay St. George Districts.
A prior recipient of the Bay St. George Chapter Scholarship is not eligible to reapply.
Value: up to $750
