2017 Recipient of the Thomas H. Edwards Endowed Scholarship!
A 2017 scholarship recipient said it best when she expressed her gratitude on receiving funding:
“The scholarship I received has really been a crucial part of my education at Saint Louis University. Being from a big family and many moves to different states due to job situations, it has not been easy funding a college degree. However, I truly feel at home at Saint Louis University and wouldn’t have it any other way. From the bottom of my heart, I truly appreciate your generosity! Small acts of generosity such as yours will be the pieces that make up the story of how I became a nurse!
