2018 Recipient of the OnCourse Learning Scholarship
A 2018 scholarship recipient said it best when she expressed her gratitude on receiving funding:
“My lifelong dream of attending nursing school is moving forward thanks to generous educational scholarship like yours. Since being named one of the recipients, my dream is becoming a reality at Davenport University School of Nursing.
This scholarship award gives me an opportunity to earn skills that will serve the nursing community. Thank you personally for your generosity. Without scholarship patrons willing to support nursing education, students such as me would be unable to pursue advanced health care degrees.
Your scholarship will help me earn my credentials as a Registered Nurse. My passion for nursing is matched only by my love for caring for people. So my decision to specialize in nursing comes from the heart.
Once again, thank you for the vote of confidence and the scholarship.
Your generosity has made a difference!”
