Helene Fuld Health Trust Scholarship

For Accelerated Direct-Entry MSN Students

The Helene Fuld Health Trust is the largest charitable trust in the United States devoted exclusively to supporting student nurses and nursing education. In 2018, the College of Nursing was awarded a grant from the Helene Fuld Health Trust Scholarship Fund to support scholarships for students in the college’s Accelerated Direct-Entry Master of Science in Nursing (MSN) program.

The Helene Fuld Health Trust endowment will be supported by matching funds from the Office of the Provost at UC, bringing the total endowment for scholarships to $1 million. The scholarship is offered twice each year to current and incoming students during the spring and summer semesters.

The competitive awards will be based on academic performance and demonstrated financial need.
