The real impact of gifts
For many graduate students, the allure of furthering their education is often hampered by the reality of its cost. Generous scholarship support at the School of Nursing enables students to pursue their dreams without the added financial burdens that distract focus or deter passionate individuals committed to leading the change in health care.
Over the past decade, public university tuition has risen 112 percent—and the financial burden has shifted from states to families. Individuals, private health organizations and foundations recognize how investment in students at the School of Nursing is prudent and forward thinking for anyone who wants to improve the health and wellness of themselves, their families or their communities.
