|College of Nursing receives $15,000 match grant|
The College of Nursing has received a match grant in the amount of $15,000 from Dakota Medical Foundation to provide scholarships for nursing students.
The grant award is contingent on the college raising matching dollars. Dakota Medical Foundation will provide a direct match, up to $15,000, for all scholarship dollars donated by alumni and friends. This unique opportunity allows one donor’s gift to have double the impact.
“Producing one nurse will, over a lifetime, directly affect nearly 1,000 people through the care they provide,” said Chandice Covington, dean of nursing. “Supporting nursing students really is an everlasting scholarship; Dakota Medical Foundation understands this. They are strong supporters of nursing both on the UND campus and across the region.”
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, contact Becky Cournia at the College of Nursing for more information, 777-4526.
Dakota Medical Foundation, based in Fargo, N.D., focuses its efforts on improving access to medical and dental care in the region, with a special emphasis on children. Since 1996, the foundation has invested more than $28 million in over 275 nonprofit organizations in the region. For more information, see www.dakmed.org.
