Flanagan Memorial Scholarship

In Memory of Abigail Flanagan

The Flanagan Memorial Scholarship was formed in the fall of 2017 to remember the life of Abigail Flanagan, DNP and to continue her legacy of service and mentorship. Dr. Flanagan, lovingly known as Abi, was committed to serving the people of Honduras through her passion for Nursing. She was a selfless mentor to the younger volunteers and had the ability to bring a smile to anyone and everyone she interacted with. The scholarship is awarded annually to one recipient in the amount of a full brigade scholarship. We hope that the spirit of Dr. Flanagan will illuminate the experience of the recipient, who will then carry on her legacy in their future experiences.

Brigade Scholarship Eligibility

In order to be eligible for the Flanagan Memorial Scholarship, applicants must:

One annual scholarship will be awarded in the form of a program contribution and airfare for a brigade to any country with the recipient’s chapter. The scholarship must be applied toward a brigade within one year of receiving the scholarship. The program contribution is for one 7 day brigade and the airfare is for one ticket booked through group airfare with Global Brigades’ travel team.
