Preference will be given to applicants who have already volunteered with Hands of Hope Northwest.

The scholarship is named in honor of Liz Murtland, the founding Executive Director of Hands of Hope NW in 1992. She and her husband, Rich, served for 20 years until she retired in 2011. Liz forged countless relationships with medical staff in clinics and hospitals in impoverished communities around the world. Her efforts paved the way for shipments of medical equipment and supplies to the poorest of the poor in dozens of countries. Donated equipment gave mobility to the disabled. Medical supplies saved lives. And tons of equipment was saved from landfills. Liz was recognized as Citizen of the Year in 2010 by Mayor Tom Dale.
