Fuld Fellows

Fuld Fellows

The Fuld Fellowship provides full-tuition scholarships for Accelerated BSN (ABSN) students who have demonstrated a special commitment to leadership, scholarship, and social responsibility as a component of professional nursing practice.

The Fuld Fellowship program is available to students who have strong roots in social responsibility and can reasonably return to school only with financial support of the fellowship program.  These Fellowships provide opportunities for second degree students who want to study nursing to move straight through a program that will award them a BSN degree, followed by an MSN degree.

The studies and experiences of Fuld Fellows are further defined through the school's social responsibility programs such as the Farm Worker Family Health Program and Alternative Winter and Spring Break Trips. These and other opportunities for the Fuld Fellows are coordinated through the Lillian Carter Center for Global Health & Social Responsibility.  After graduation, Fuld Fellows will re-enter their careers as masters' prepared nurses with a deep working knowledge of health issues for vulnerable people in the U.S. and internationally, coupled with a strong sense of direction and mission for realistically addressing these problems.

The Fuld Fellowship provides full-tuition to cover four semesters of the baccalaureate program and one calendar year of master's program.

The Fuld Fellowships are made possible through a grant from the Helene Fuld Health Trust.
