Scholarship Overview

For qualified persons who wish to attend the 2018 Nebraska Hospice and Palliative Care Association “Living a Good the End of Life” Annual Conference, NHPCA will award seven one-day conference scholarships to the following disciplines:

  • Nursing (two scholarships)
  • Chaplain (one scholarship)
  • Social work (one scholarship)
  • Volunteer coordinator (one scholarship)
  • Bereavement coordinator (one scholarship)

The NHPCA conference scholarships are funded by the Galen Miller Memorial Education Fund, which was established by NHPCA in memory of Galen Miller, late executive vice president of the National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization. The scholarship fund honors Dr. Miller’s passion for hospice and end-of-life care by providing scholarships to hospice and palliative care professionals in Nebraska.
