Janet Byars Memorial Nursing Scholarship

Janet Byars

The Janet Byars Memorial Scholarship was established by the Bobby Byars Foundation, Inc. in memory of Janet Byars, who passed away in January 2022. She was passionate about her family and her career as a cardiac nurse. She gave of herself freely, and through her father, Bobby Byars, she learned to live her life with the purpose of continuing a legacy of vision, hope, and empowerment.

This renewable scholarship, (maximum of two years), will support tuition and facility fees, books and tools and supplies required by the syllabus. This scholarship will support all MCC students who are studying nursing with a preference for students participating in TRIO programs.

Scholarship Criteria:

  • Nursing, minimum of 9 credit hours in a quarter
  • Full-time students
  • Financial need recommended, as determined by MCC Financial Aid through completion of FAFSA
  • Must have a cumulative GPA of 2.5

Scholarships are usually offered during the spring and fall quarters. Scholarship availability varies depending on donor giving.
