Date:9/18/2007

WHITE PLAINS, N.Y., Sept. 18 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Six exceptional registered nurses have been awarded scholarships from the March of Dimes for graduate studies in the field of maternal-child nursing.

"These nurses are outstanding examples of the dedication and vision of nurses all over the country who are working tirelessly to improve maternal and infant health. The March of Dimes is proud to recognize their achievements and help them go on to make even greater contributions to their communities," said Dr. Jennifer L. Howse, president of the March of Dimes.

For the third consecutive year, the March of Dimes awarded six scholarships instead of the traditional four because of a generous contribution from Procter & Gamble Company.

Three recipients are working toward doctorate degrees and three are studying for their master's degrees. One recipient is a soldier who is continuing her nursing studies while on active duty in Iraq.

The March of Dimes Graduate Nursing Scholarship was founded in 1997 to assist registered nurses enrolled in graduate programs in maternal-child nursing. Each recipient receives $5,000.

The scholarship winners are:

Anjli Aurora, of Georgia, who is pursuing a master's degree at Emory University School of Nursing.

Sandra Banta-Wright, of Oregon, who is pursuing a doctorate at Oregon Health & Science University School of Nursing.

Jessica Brumley, of Florida, who is pursuing a doctorate at the University of South Florida School of Nursing.

Jane DeLuca, of New York, who is pursuing a doctorate in nursing at the University of Rochester.

Laura Jenson, of Oregon, who is pursuing a dual master's degree in nursing and public health at the Oregon Health & Science University School of Nursing.

Laura Kostura, of Massachusetts, who is pursuing a master's degree at the University of Cincinnati.

Qualified applicants are registered nurses in a graduate program in maternal-child nursing at the master's or doctorate level. Applicants must be a member of the American College of Nurse-Midwives, the Association of Women's Health, Obstetric and Neonatal Nurses, or the National Association of Neonatal Nurses. Applications for 2008 scholarships will be available at http://www.marchofdimes.com/scholarship, or by calling the March of Dimes at (914) 997-4609. Applications for 2008 scholarships are due January 15, 2008. The March of Dimes works to improve the health of babies by preventing birth defects, premature birth and infant mortality.
