There is a scholarship for people studying for certificates or associate degrees in health- or child-care careers. Adults as well as high school seniors are encouraged to apply.

Applications are being accepted for the Nora Catherine Tosti Memorial Scholarship. They are due March 1.

Nora Tosti’s loving family and caring friends established this scholarship to honor the memory of a young woman who cared deeply about others.

 

At the time of her death, she was studying to become a medical assistant. She had worked for several years as a nurse’s aid caring for elderly patients and wanted to further her education to pursue a health-care career. She also loved small children and wanted to become a foster parent.

The Nora Catherine Tosti Memorial Scholarship Fund has been established to help people who, like Nora, want to pursue careers in health care or child care at the certificate or associate degree level. Although candidates for bachelor’s degrees will be considered, those pursuing certificates or associate degrees will have first preference. This scholarship is open to adults as well as new high school graduates.

The $1,000 scholarship will be awarded to a current or former resident of Arlington.

Interested applicants should request an application by contacting the Guidance Office at Minuteman Regional High School, 758 Marrett Road in Lexington, Mass. 02421, or by calling 781-861-6500 x289.

The Nora Catherine Tosti Memorial Scholarship will be awarded without regard to race, gender, nationality, religion, disability or sexual orientation.
