$7M gift to fund 200+ nursing scholarships at University of Maryland School of Nursing

The University of Maryland School of Nursing has received a $7 million gift that will fund 218 nursing scholarships over the next four years, the Baltimore-based school said May 3. 

The gift is from the Bedford Falls Foundation, a donor fund established by Bill and Joanne Conway. It will support 116 scholarships for students pursuing a BSN, 42 MSN program scholarships and 60 scholarships for the school's Teaching in Nursing and Health Professions Certificate.

The scholarships — to be awarded from spring 2024 through fall 2027 — will cover up to 100 percent of tuition, fees and books. The donation will also support the creation of a faculty position to prepare nursing students for the newest version of the National Council Licensure Examination, and a yearlong pilot residency program to support nurses transitioning from practice to the academic setting.
