Date:10/10/2007

GAINESVILLE, Ga., Oct. 10 /PRNewswire/ -- Brenau University today announced it received a $250,000 grant from the Wal-Mart Foundation to establish a scholarship program and academic support services.

The university will use the grant to aid Hispanic women pursuing degrees in healthcare-related professions.

The newly created program, named the Wal-Mart Nursing and Healthcare Scholars Program at Brenau, will help the university recruit and support Hispanic women in nursing or health-related majors. Working with Hispanic families, the program will assist with the application process, financial aid and follow-up support to help the students succeed academically after they are enrolled.

"With this grant, Wal-Mart proves once again that it not only is a vital economic asset to our community but also a visionary organization that recognizes and addresses the community's future needs," said Brenau University President Ed Schrader. "The Spanish-speaking population in our community is growing rapidly, but the overall population in the region is dramatically underserved by health care professionals. The Wal-Mart Foundation's generosity will help us provide many more skilled, multilingual health care professionals to serve all the people in this community."

"The Wal-Mart Foundation has a long history of supporting the communities we serve," said Esther Silver-Parker, Wal-Mart's senior vice president of Diversity Relations. "Through this grant to Brenau University, we believe many members of the greater Gainesville community, and Georgia, will reap long-term benefits."

Brenau University, with roots in the north Georgia community dating to 1879, already has strong academic programs in healthcare, including a masters degree program in clinical psychology and a five-year undergraduate and graduate program in occupational therapy. Additionally, its nursing curriculum, offered through the Women's College in Gainesville as well as the Evening & Wee
