Nursing Scholarships

Realizing Potential

Financial hardship is a leading barrier to academic pursuit and success. Through the vision and generosity of a number of individuals and organizations, many deserving students at the Ron and Kathy Assaf College of Nursing have benefited from scholarship support.  Without philanthropic gifts, many of our students would not be able to complete their education, achieve career success and begin to make contributions to the communities where they will serve. We are grateful to those individuals and organizations who have joined the Ron and Kathy Assaf College of Nursing in helping our students to realize their potential in new and innovative roles in today’s changing health care system.
