The Washington Post has reported that The Catholic University of America is receiving a $4 million gift from the Bedford Falls Foundation Charitable Trust to fund scholarships for students pursuing nursing jobs in the Washington area. The foundation was established by William and Joanne Conway.
The gift will be made in $1 million installments over four years. It will fund the William and Joanne Conway Nursing Scholars Program for 18 undergraduates with financial need.
Nursing Dean Patricia McMullen says the grant will significantly increase the number of students pursuing nursing degrees.
