The Margaret Jordan NHS Scholarship

Scholarship Description
This scholarship was established by the Southern California Edison Company in honor of Margaret Jordan for her outstanding contribution, as Vice President for Health Care and Employee Services, to improving the company's health care program. The fund is designed to encourage African-American women from the District of Columbia to pursue nursing careers. Jordan, the first African-American graduate of the GU School of Nursing and Health Studies, was a member of the GU Class of 1964 and was awarded the Distinguished Alumna Award in 1995. An eighth-generation Washingtonian, Jordan went on from Georgetown to earn a master's degree in public health administration and planning from the University of California at Berkley. During her long and distinguished career she held positions with Southern California Edison, Kaiser Foundation Health Plans in California, Georgia, and Texas, and in national and regional positions with the United States Public Health Service. She was a founding member of the National Black Nursing Association and served on the GUNHS Board of Visitors and the GU Board of Regents. This scholarship is awarded to a deserving student in the School of Nursing and Health Studies who demonstrates financial need for Georgetown scholarship aid, and in recognition of Ms. Jordan with a preference in selection for an eligible African-American woman from the District of Columbia.
