Helene Fuld Health Trust Scholarship Fund

The Helene Fuld Health Trust Scholarship Fund was established in 2014 by a grant from the Helene Fuld Health Trust.  Scholarships from the Fuld Trust are used to provide current financial aid to students enrolled in the Accelerated 2nd Degree BSN (BSNA) program in the W. Cary Edwards School of Nursing.  Because of the timing of the grant, this scholarship may be offered apart from the June-July application period associated with the general award cycle.
