Testimonials Heading link
“Paying for college has always been a burden on me and my family. Being privileged to receive this scholarship shows recognition. For me, it means that the hard work I put into my academics has been seen and is appreciated. This encourages me to do more and become an excellent student. One of my desires is to complete my bachelor’s degree without [debt from] student loans.”BSN student|
“Prior to starting this program, I completed my bachelor’s degree in neuroscience and English literature at Northwestern University. Now I aim to one day become a nurse practitioner. The support I receive from this scholarship will be of great help to me in paying my expenses so I can pursue these educational and career goals, and focus more on my studies.”MS/graduate-entry student|
“Currently, Black women have the highest rates of maternal mortality and morbidity in this country. With such great need for practice improvement, it is my hope and goal to bring about change in the obstetric and gynecological care afforded to women of color. This scholarship allows me the opportunity to achieve that goal as I seek to further advance the field of nursing and close the disparity gap plaguing minorities in healthcare.”DNP student|
