BrightSpring Awards Brighter Futures Scholarship and Hospice Nursing Scholarship to Help Five Louisville Students Pursue Healthcare Careers

LOUISVILLE, Ky., June 06, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- BrightSpring Health Services, ("BrightSpring” or “BrightSpring Health Services“) (NASDAQ: BTSG), a leading provider of home and community-based health services for complex health populations, is proud to continue to support high-potential and under-reached students by facilitating their ongoing academic advancement through the annual BrightSpring Brighter Futures Scholarship and BrightSpring Hospice Nursing Scholarship.

This year, BrightSpring has selected Layah Hodges of Louisville, Kentucky, as the recipient of the 2024 Brighter Futures Scholarship. The Company has also awarded the Hospice Nursing Scholarship to the following four students from Louisville: Morgan Harper, Chasta May, Samyah Edwards, and Onileola Ilesanmi. 

“We are excited to award this year’s scholarships to five hard-working and deserving Louisville students who have dedicated their education to fields that help others within the community, and we look forward to seeing them further achieve their educational goals,” said Jon Rousseau, BrightSpring’s President and CEO. “At BrightSpring, we are committed to investing in the higher education of talented students and local youth who will soon be leaders of tomorrow.” 

The Brighter Futures Scholarship was launched in 2021 as part of BrightSpring’s ongoing effort to bring opportunities to talented students and those needing additional support. Last year, the Company established the Hospice Nursing Scholarship for nursing students who are passionate about the distinctly personalized and human nature of palliative and end-of-life care and have chosen hospice as their practice area after graduation. 

The Brighter Futures Scholarship is $10,000 per year and renewable for up to four consecutive years ($40,000 in total) for awarded students. The Hospice Nursing Scholarship awards $5,000 per year for up to two years ($10,000 in total) for four accomplished students who are enrolled in an accredited RN or BSN nursing program. 

Both scholarships are component funds at the Community Foundation of Louisville, which were established and are advised by BrightSpring Health Services.
