Currently, the scholarship is not accepting applications for the fall 2016 semester. Please check back periodically; we will announce when we reopen the scholarship application. Scholarship donations are still being accepted here.
Times are tough for everyone, including for nursing students and new graduates. The costs associated with higher education are increasing. State budgets are still being slashed, and as a result, tuition continues to rise.
Several years ago, the College of Nursing Alumni Association established the College of Nursing Alumni Scholarship, now called the S. Clare Sandekian Scholarship Fund, funded initially by members of the CONAA Board of Directors. Additional alumni contributed to the fund, enabling more students to benefit annually from their generosity. The scholarship funds have been designated for College of Nursing alumni graduate students, preferably alumni.
It is the board’s hope to take the scholarship fund to the next level. Instead of depending on only annual gifts to cover the scholarship, they would like to endow the fund and use the earnings from the endowment to provide annual scholarships. By endowing the fund, they are cementing the S. Clare Sandekian Scholarship Fund and the success of countless students. Alumni support to the S. Clare Sandekian Scholarship Fund is a vote of confidence not only in the students, but also in the College of Nursing and the future of Colorado!
Give to the S. Clare Sandekian Scholarship Fund.
