|Nursing receives $7,500 scholarship grant from Dakota Medical Foundation|
The College of Nursing has received a match grant in the amount of $7,500 from Dakota Medical Foundation to support 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 $7,500, for all scholarship dollars donated by alumni and friends. This opportunity allows one donor's gift to have double the impact. To date, more than $4,100 has been raised.
"Dakota Medical Foundation is a true friend to nursing on both the UND campus and across the region," said Julie Anderson, 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 an everlasting scholarship."
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 at the UND College of Nursing for more information, 777-4526.
