The Amin Family Nursing Scholarship Fund was established in 2019 by the Amin Family to support scholarships for Reading High School seniors who plan to pursue their education in nursing after graduation. Good grades and attendance as well as financial need and responses to essay questions play roles in the selection process.

Patty Amin, a 1981 graduate of Reading High School, completed her Associate Degree in nursing at Alvernia University and earned a Bachelor of Science in nursing from Grand Canyon University. Patty has been employed by Penn State Health – St. Joseph since 1993. She always considered nursing to be an honorable career and felt blessed to help others in their time of need. The goal of the Amin family is to support the nursing profession and Reading High students pursuing a career in nursing by offering scholarships to help lessen the financial burden of a nursing education.

Reading High School seniors who plan to continue their education after high school in the field of nursing, have achieved a cumulative unweighted GPA of 3.0 (B average) or above, have a financial need, and have an acceptable high school attendance record, may apply for this scholarship.

To be considered for this scholarship, submit an application between January 1st and March 1st. All applicants will be notified in May.
