|College of Nursing receives $15,000 grant from Dakota Medical Foundation|
The College of Nursing has received a $15,000 matching grant from Dakota Medical Foundation to support scholarships for nursing students. Dakota Medical Foundation will provide a direct match, up to $15,000, for all scholarship dollars donated by alumni and friends.
“Dakota Medical Foundation is a true friend to nursing on both the UND campus and across the region,” said Chandice Covington, dean of nursing. “Their leaders are clearly aware of the effect nurses have on the community. Producing one nurse will, over a lifetime, directly affect nearly 1,000 people through the care they provide. Supporting nursing students really is a lasting scholarship.”
Dakota Medical Foundation, based in Fargo, N.D., focuses its efforts on improving access to medical and dental care. Since its inception in 1995, the foundation has invested over $26.5 million in more than 270 non-profit organizations to help them measurably improve health and access to healthcare.

Rising tuition and fees make funding a college degree difficult; students often take part-time jobs to finance college, all the while losing valuable study time. If you would like to support this scholarship opportunity, please contact Becky Cournia, College of Nursing, 777-4526.
