(Minot, N.D.)ñTrinity Health Foundation announced Tuesday that it’s taking a proactive stance in encouraging students to go into the nursing field through matching donations to its nursing scholarship endowment. All donations up to $250,000 that are made to the endowment before July 15, 2016, will be matched by the Foundation, thus turning a $1,000 private gift into a $2,000 donation to the endowment.
‘A gift to the Trinity Health Foundation nursing scholarship fund is truly an investment in the future of nursing in North Dakota, and it’s an investment in the care you and your loved ones receive at Trinity Health,’ said Al Evon, Trinity Health Foundation director. ‘With a projected nursing shortage on the horizon, now is the time to educate our next generation of nurses and ensure high quality care for years to come.’
Donations can be made in three ways: mail, by phone or online. To make a gift by mail, checks should be made out to the Trinity Health Foundation with ‘nursing scholarships’ in the memo line. Donations can be mailed to Trinity Health Foundation, P.O. Box 5020, Minot, N.D. 58702. To make a gift by phone, call 1-701-857-5432 or 1-701-857-2430. To make a gift online, go to trinityhealthfoundationnd.org and click on the ‘Double Your Dollars’ nursing scholarship link.
The Trinity Health Foundation awards up to 10 $3,000 scholarships each year to applicants pursuing either an associate’s or a bachelor’s degree in nursing. New or current nursing students, as well as Trinity Health employees pursuing their BSN, are eligible for the scholarships. Applicants must be accepted to an accredited nursing program to be eligible, and there are no employment requirements for recipients. Applications are accepted from August 1 to October 1 of each year and recipients are named in December. Applications will be available online or at the Trinity Health Foundation office.
