This scholarship was established in 1997 to honor Ellen Boyda, a charter member of the SePA Chapter. SePA encourages the educational advancement of its members and also promotes attendance at critical care nursing related conferences and programs. Scholarship funds may be utilized to support members completing a baccalaureate or graduate degree in nursing, as well as towards registration, travel, hotel, etc. costs for approved programs such as AACN’s National Teaching Institute or SePA’s TRENDS in Critical Care Nursing Conference.



Recipients of this scholarship must be active SePA Chapter members as defined by the accumulation of point totals from the Point Evaluation Form. The funded amount is based upon points accrued for involvement in chapter activities within the immediate past chapter fiscal year (July to June). **FOR THIS YEAR ONLY, WE ARE EXTENDING THE TIMEFRAME FROM JANUARY 2017-JUNE 2018**



Dollar amounts are individually given per point submitted from the Point Evaluation Form based upon the total number of approved points received from all applicants per year. There are no longer options to rollover or bank points, thus all unused funds will be forfeited. The scholarship is considered a reimbursement for approved professional activities that occurred during the same fiscal year the application is submitted.
