Endowed scholarships are crucial to our success in educating the nursing leaders of tomorrow and advancing health in California and beyond.
Behind every endowment are stories — of donors who give to the university they love, students who benefit from the generosity of others, and families who strive to make the world a better place through giving. When donors create an endowment, they make an everlasting gift to the UCLA School of Nursing. An endowment donation is never spent. It is invested, and earnings from the investment provide ongoing support for the university.
Donors who choose to establish scholarships often do so in honor or memory of someone who has made a difference in their lives. They also are making a difference, creating legacies of leadership, and guiding the School of Nursing and University into the future.
It is important to us that we collect and share these stories, providing a historical record of philanthropy at the UCLA School of Nursing. If you have information about one of our endowed scholarships listed below, or would like information about establishing your own endowed scholarship or other ways to give, please contact Amy Drizhal at 310-794-2358 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
