Clara Neyhart has devoted her nursing career to the care of patients with kidney disease. Greg Neyhart is a college professor in chemistry. Clara and Greg believe that education often provides the means to reach goals and move forward out of life’s struggles. Kidney disease can be a life-long challenge. The healthcare team provides physical and emotional support needed for healing. The patient, however, must have the courage to face altered dreams, work plans and relationships, in addition to the illness. New goals and future plans are essential to maintain hope and move forward.
In this spirit, Clara and Greg Neyhart have established this scholarship to encourage and support education for people with kidney disease. It is Clara and Greg’s hope that this scholarship will provide the first step for many people toward defining their future, in spite of, rather than because of their kidney disease.
Neyhart Scholarship is awarded annually to a North Carolina resident attending a North Carolina based educational institution (university, community college or vocational/technical school).
Award is available to applicants with kidney disease, kidney transplant or to children of parents with kidney disease or transplant. First priority is given to kidney patients.
Applications will be accepted until May 1, 2018.
