Donors may request their donation be applied to a legacy scholarship or grant. These donors have the opportunity to define the name of the scholarship or grant as well as any special criteria for applicants and recipients to meet. Such scholarships and grants are frequently named after the donor, referencing a field of study, or in memory of someone the donor wishes to honor.

Donation Levels:

Because of the time and effort involved in preparing and processing applications and administering the scholarships and grants, we suggest a minimum donation amount of $1,000. However, we will accept any amount you feel will be helpful towards meeting a nursing student's educational expenses or special program.
