Stacie Morse Education Scholarship
Flight nurse Stacie Morse, flight paramedic Margaret Langston, and pilot Patrick Coyle perished on January 29th, 2019, while responding to a call for a fixed wing patient transport. As ECHO’s second member from Alaska, she was known as “Alaska 2” and had a strong passion for learning. Stacie had a huge love for the outdoors and volunteering to better the community in which she lived. Stacie worked in various settings between ED and ICU nursing before beginning her career as a flight nurse in Juneau, Alaska.
The Stacie Morse Education Scholarship is intended for a female nurse in a rural area interested in pursuing a career as a flight nurse. This scholarship applies towards nurses with at least three years of experience in an ED or ICU setting, who are passionate about dedicating the time and effort it takes to provide the highest level of care to patients in the air medical environment. Funds may be applied towards courses that will improve knowledge of air medical transport, including trauma courses, safety courses, and successfully completing certification courses and exams.
Applicants should apply through our website. Applications will open on March 1st, 2019. Scholarship funds will be awarded based on availability, demonstrated need and following successful completion of the education program or class. For graded courses, successful completion is defined as a “B” or better.
