New nursing scholarship honors Roberto and Agniela Bayardo

The TWU Foundation is pleased to announce the creation of the Dr. Roberto J. and Agniela "Annie" M. Bayardo Texas Medical Association Foundation (TMAF) Hispanic Nursing Annual Scholarship. The annual scholarship, which will provide significant funding for a nursing student, has been established by the Harris County Medical Society Alliance (HCMSA) Hispanic Nursing Scholarship Program. The scholarship is a need-based award for a first-year student in the pre–licensure BSN program from Harris or Travis counties. It provides funding for tuition, fees, books and uniforms.

The scholarship program is funded by the Harris County Medical Society Alliance (HCMSA) Hispanic Nursing Scholarship Program and the Travis County Medical Alliance Foundation (TCMAF) and in conjunction with the TMA Foundation. Scholarship recipients are referred to as Bayardo Scholars in honor of Dr. Bayardo and his late wife of Houston.
