Student Scholarships

Your gift to the Catalyst Campaign will support these fundraising goals:

  • Named Scholarships
  • General Scholarship Fund

A catalyst for shaping today's and tomorrow's nursing professionals.

For more than 125 years, the University of Maryland School of Nursing has provided the best nursing education and experience possible for thousands of aspiring nursing professionals. Students from diverse backgrounds create a rich, stimulating learning environment that reflects the patient populations these future nurses and nurse leaders will serve.

Scholarships are important resources that help us offset the high cost of education, keeping it affordable for all qualified students who wish to pursue a career in nursing. However, in light of the increasing expense of providing cutting-edge nursing education, additional resources are needed.

We need your financial support to award scholarships to the next generations of nurses and nurse leaders and to help relieve the debt burden our graduates would otherwise face.

Preparing Nursing Professionals

Jade Kim, BSN, RN, CCRN, began her career as a nurse at Greater Baltimore Medical Center on the Acute Care for the Elderly unit. There, she found a passion for caring for older adults.

A student in the Doctor of Nursing Practice Adult-Gerontology Primary Care Nurse Practitioner specialty, Kim received the Resnick-Sollins Gerontological Nursing Scholarship. The funds allow Kim to focus less on funding her tuition while pursuing a career in primary care for geriatric patients with dementia.

"As a student, part-time nurse, homeowner, and wife," she says, "this financial support brings me closer to achieving my goal of becoming a geriatric nurse practitioner."

The Future of Nursing

Bachelor of Science in Nursing student Elvis Amardi-Frimpong, CNA, GNA, believes that with continuous determination, a strong work
ethic, and the generosity of others, all things are possible.

Born in Accra, Ghana, Amardi-Frimpong and his family moved to the U.S. due to lack of opportunity in their country. Here, he set his sights on attaining a Bachelor of Science in Nursing from the University of Maryland School of Nursing and eventually going on to earn his Doctor of Nursing Practice degree. He was awarded the Alice Catharine Horine Scigliano Scholarship, which is awarded to nursing students based on merit.

"Accepting this award has shown me that another person sees my potential," Amardi-Frimpong says, "and as a result I cannot, and will not, let them down."
