Student completing Bachelor of Science in Nursing with full scholarship funded by Bill and Joanne Conway.
Lauren Russell, BS, RN, became the first student from the University of Maryland (UM) Prince George’s Hospital Center to take advantage of a full scholarship and enroll in the University of Maryland School of Nursing (UMSON) through its Conway Scholarship Hospital Partnership Program.
Funds for the Conway Scholarship Hospital Partnership Program, which seeks to facilitate baccalaureate-level education for registered nurses at the UM Prince George’s Hospital Center, part of UM Capital Region Health, and at the UM Medical Center Midtown Campus, come from a transformational $10 million gift from Bill and Joanne Conway through their Bedford Falls Foundation. The Conway Scholarship covers in-state tuition, fees, books, and the cost of community college prerequisites required for admission to UMSON’s RN-to-Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) program. The gift will fund Conway Scholarships for 42 registered nurses to earn their BSN degrees through the Hospital Partnership Program.
