The purpose of the Lyons New Opportunities Nursing Scholarship established by Phil and Carol Lyons, is to provide scholarships to students who are pursuing an undergraduate degree (BSN) and have been admitted to the University of Arizona College of Nursing.

Preference is given to first-generation college students, defined as those with neither parent having any education beyond high school and/or neither parent having received a four-year college degree.

“The point of the scholarship is to recognize the tremendous importance of nurses and nursing, especially given the greater demands on medical services as a result of the Affordable Care Act,” said Phil. The goal is to provide $5,000 to qualifying students in their first year of the nursing program.
