UAA Nursing Endowed Scholarship

Mission

UAA’s Nursing Endowed Scholarship provides financial assistance to nursing students enrolled in UAA nursing programs on the UAA main campus in Anchorage, as well as across 15 community campuses in the state. As we strive to create a community of Alaskans caring for Alaskans, we invite your support and friendship in this effort.

Need

The Alaska health care and social assistance sector will grow by over 5,000 jobs through 2028, far more than any other industry. This trend will continue as our population ages and health care needs increase. To fill the gap, providers frequently hire traveling or temporary nurses, yet this is an expensive solution that results in higher medical costs for everyone.

Fortunately, at this critical juncture for our state, UAA continues to prioritize health degrees. With your help, we can uplift and fast-track more nursing students to make a positive impact on our communities.

Fund details

Purpose: To provide financial assistance for tuition and related educational expenses to nursing students enrolled in a nursing program administered by UAA, offered at any community across the state.

Current value of the fund: $53,946.

Current awards: One annual scholarship of $1,000.

FY2025 goal: $250,000 fund value, 10 annual scholarship awards.

Join us

The number one reason students leave nursing school is financial hardship. Endowed scholarships create that reliable source of support our students so desperately need. With your help, we can assure students that financial assistance will be there for them from their first year to their last.

Support tomorrow’s nurses today.

DOUBLE YOUR GIFT: ALL DONATIONS RECEIVED BEFORE DECEMBER 31, 2020 WILL BE MATCHED DOLLAR-FOR-DOLLAR (up to $75,000) BY OUR GENEROUS DONORS.

History of the Fund

Tina DeLapp, former director and professor emerita at UAA's School of Nursing, joined with fellow nursing faculty members Judy Petersen and Patti Hong to establish the Nursing Endowed Scholarship. It was fully endowed after receiving major support from the Alaska Kidney Foundation.
