Brenda Ells Hamm Memorial Scholarship

This scholarship is in loving memory of Brenda Ells Hamm, a wife, mother and friend. Brenda was an RN nurse for 30 years. During her final days, the respiratory care staff were able to provide her comfort and peace, some of which were Gwinnett Technical College graduates. Her daughter and Gwinnett Tech Foundation Board of Trustees member, Elizabeth Quick, created this scholarship along with her family.

Eligibility Requirements:

  • Enrolled in Gwinnett Technical College;
  • Accepted into the Respiratory Care Program;
  • Applicants with the greatest financial need will have priority.

Applications cannot be processed unless all required documentation is attached to the application at time of submittal.

Scholarship funds are to be used for tuition, books, and program supplies used solely for the benefit of the individual receiving the scholarship. Before funds will be disbursed, the Foundation office must receive a note of thanks from the recipient to the donor(s).

The Gwinnett Tech Foundation committee will select and notify the scholarship recipients.

If the recipient fails to enroll, withdraws from college, or does not maintain eligibility requirements, the Gwinnett Tech Foundation will select another student if time permits; otherwise, funds will be held in the donor’s account to be carried over to the next semester.
