The Ladies Board of Inova Loudoun Hospital has awarded 29 nursing scholarships totaling $62,000 to
nurses who live and/or work in Loudoun County.

Recipients are enrolled in LPN, BSN, RN, MSN, and DNP programs at 19 schools and The Academies of
Loudoun. Awards range from $1,000 (for Academies of Loudoun students) to $2,000, with $500
bonuses given to nurses employed at Inova Loudoun Hospital and Inova Nursing and Rehabilitation

“Despite a difficult year of dealing with closures and limited reopenings of the Board’s Riverside Gift
Shop and Twice Is Nice thrift shop, plus cancellation of the 2020 Ladies Board Rummage Sale, the
scholarship committee was able to award scholarships to 29 worthy recipients,” commented Arlene
Kilborn, chairperson of The Ladies Board’s Nursing Scholarship Committee. “We are pleased to assist
them as they pursue further nursing education,” she added.

Since the nursing scholarship program began in 1960 to provide supplemental funds to worthy nursing
students, The Ladies Board has awarded over $2 million to over 1,300 applicants.
Scholarship applications for next year will be available at in January 2022.
Applicants must live and/or work in Loudoun County and be enrolled in or accepted by an accredited
school of nursing.

Scholarships are funded by Riverside Gift Shop at Inova Loudoun Hospital, Twice Is Nice thrift shop in
Leesburg, the Lights of Love remembrance program, and the Annual Ladies Board Rummage Sale.
