Karen P. Brown Scholarship



The Karen Poulsen Brown scholarship was established in 2020 by the Needs Beyond Medicine Board of Directors.  It was created to honor Karen’s dedication to her family, her community, and to the field of nursing where she worked for over 25 years.  Karen died in 1996 after a valiant fight against ovarian cancer, and this scholarship has been established in an attempt to aid future nursing students who represent the same level of commitment, enthusiasm, and positive attitude that she exhibited. The scholarship is set at $1,000 and is designed to help students pay for specific college education costs.
