Saint Francis Foundation

School of Nursing Alumni Scholarship Program

In 1938, Marguerite Coleman, RN, who served as President of the Saint Francis Hospital School of Nursing Alumni Association, created a "loan program" to assist graduates in advancing their nursing education. This program transformed into a scholarship award and more than $500,000 has been presented. 

This year a ceremony was not held due to COVID-19 but $35,000 was distributed to the following recipients:

Thomas Allen; Kelsey Anderson; Javier Bello; Samantha Bonfiglio; Emily Buyak; Sheila DeLuca; Kathryn Dolan; Fiona Dunn; Ethan Heidgerd; Fauzia Ileaasu; Kayla Kasmire; Monique Looney; Melina Mascaro
