Faye Austin Cosentino Scholarship

Scholarship Description

Faye Austin Cosentino was a Brooksville native who pursued a career as a thoughtful and innovative nurse. She developed protocols for new mothers to avoid pulmonary embolisms and initiated a review of IV procedures with the Centers for Disease Control that resulted in new standards. Faye and her fellow committee members traveled throughout the United States and to China in the 1980s to present their findings. She was the author of many technical papers and books in her area of specialty, and she was the first nurse to have a paper published in the New England Journal of Medicine. Faye returned to Brooksville in 1990 to retire and subsequently researched and published nine books of historical interest to the town.This scholarship in her memory supports residents of Brooksville who are pursuing post-secondary education who share a similar passion for innovation. Preference is given to students enrolled in a degree program preparing for a career in nursing or studies in history.Contact: MSBE Foundation, P.O. Box 277, Brooksville, ME 04617
