Lorain County Community College is proud to announce the availability of the Julia E. Biakanja Nursing Scholarship. Julia Biakanja was very proud of her many years as a registered nurse. She attended M.B. Johnson School of Nursing in Elyria, Ohio and graduated in 1947. In 1987, the M.B. Johnson School of Nursing merged with the Lorain County Community College Nursing program.

- Second year associates degree nursing students who intend to pursue an RN to BSN or an RN to MSN
