Celebrating Gifts

with Double Impact

In their quest to guide healing and care for life, today’s nursing students are

the promise of tomorrow. Thanks to the generosity of our nursing alumni

and friends, 21 new scholarships and fellowships have been created to provide

deserving nursing students with the opportunity to succeed. To encourage

additional gifts of $25,000 and more, the University has developed matching

programs that double the impact of gifts for new endowed scholarships and

graduate fellowships. We are grateful for the donors who created the following

scholarships that have most recently qualified for matching University funds.

undergraduate scholarships:


In a wonderful gesture of support, alumni

from across the country have stepped

forward to make Buck-A-Year contributions

that celebrate the years since their own

graduation. Now topping $34,000, the

I Want to Be a Nurse Scholarship is fully

endowed to provide support for new undergraduate

students. In offering best wishes

to new graduates, Diane Witzig, MPH ’83,

wrote,“You will never be sorry you became a

nurse. Don’t ever stop your education. This is

a profession of life-long learning!”


Funded by the estate of the late Helen

Colby, BSN ’51, the scholarship is for

deserving new undergraduate students

attending the School of Nursing. Helen

was originally from Cook, Minnesota. She

received her early nursing education in

Rochester, Minnesota, and later earned her

baccalaureate degree from the University

of Minnesota School of Nursing. After

graduating, she worked at the University

of Minnesota Hospital and many other

hospitals in the Twin Cities area until her

retirement in 1979. She passed away at the

age of 79.
