The "Dragon Lady" Nursing Scholarship

The Carol J. Christiansen Memorial “Dragon Lady” Nursing Scholarship was created through a partnership between Sunrise Rotary of Alturas and MMC in honor of Carol J. Christiansen, a loving, nurturing caregiver and the mother of Modoc County resident and Veterinarian Dr. Joseph L. Catania.
A successful candidate of the “Dragon Lady” Scholarship must embody and personify the spirit, integrity, work ethic, and tenacity of the 5’2”, ornery Italian woman that Carol was. Recipients must also enroll in an eligible LVN or RN program.

There will be two windows each year for scholarship applications. Applications will be accepted annually from October 1st to November 30th for the Spring Semester, and June 1st to July 31st for the Fall Semester. Applications for a Spring Semester award will be accepted until November 30th. Applications are to be submitted to MMC’s Human Resources department.
