This scholarship was created through the estate of Ralph McRae, a former Charlevoix mayor, civic booster, and philanthropist. Ralph had a longtime admiration for the nursing profession. His mother, Edna Brown, was an unusually caring person who had a reputation for helping others, so Ralph named his fund in her memory. Scholarships will be awarded in an estimated range of $1,000 to $3,000 to students who have been accepted into the nursing program at North Central Michigan College. It can be applied to tuition, books and fees only. If the student is getting other scholarships or educational stipends, the Edna Brown Nursing Scholarship must only be used for last dollar funding. This scholarship is renewable. Criteria: The student must be a resident of Charlevoix or Emmet County who will be enrolled at least three-fourths-time in NCMC.
