The Warren D. Ruff Scholarship


Welcome to the Warren D. Ruff Scholarship Fund application.

The primary purpose of the Warren D. Ruff Fund, totaling $6.4 million (with the intent that 5% will be awarded each year), is to provide academic scholarships to increase the number of trained nurses and nursing-related health professionals who live and work in Arizona. Priority will be given, but not exclusively, to nurses and nursing candidates employed at Sun Health, Banner Boswell Medical Center and Banner Del E. Webb Medical Center in Phoenix’s West Valley. In addition, degree candidates who live in places other than Arizona may be considered for awards where critical shortages exist.

The Warren D. Ruff Scholarship Fund reflects the impact generosity can have for generations in creating a world where people live longer, healthier, more purposeful lives.

Scholarship applications will be considered individually every semester for number of applicants according to priority eligibility and program criteria, as well as semester funding available. Scholarship candidates must have applied for the program at a minimum to be considered with proof of enrollment in courses for the scholarship being required for all scholarship applicants by the time of verification. Prior scholarship award may not guarantee future scholarships. Incomplete or late applications will not be considered.

For any application questions, please contact Heather Grizzard at or by phone by calling (623) 229 - 2522.
You will be notified of your application status by November 24, 2023.
