College Receives Helene Fuld Trust Grant
June 9, 2014
The College of Nursing and Health Professions is pleased to announce that the Helene Fuld Health Trust has awarded the College a $650,000 grant to fund financial aid for students enrolled in the College’s Accelerated Career Entry (ACE) BSN Program. Leadership at the College of Nursing and Health Professions was notified of the grant by the Charitable Advisory Discretionary Committee for the Helene Fuld Health Trust in April.
The grant will be paid in three installments, each of which will be divided in half. Half of every installment will be used for current financial aid for students enrolled in the ACE BSN Program; the other half will be placed in an Endowment Fund.
The Accelerated Career Entry BSN Program is an innovative 11-month intensive second degree program for students wishing to earn a degree in nursing after having already completed undergraduate or graduate degrees in other subjects. Many of our ACE BSN students enroll in the program in order to make a career change.
"We are truly grateful for this generous commitment from the Helene Fuld Health Trust,” said Gloria Donnelly, Dean of the Drexel College of Nursing and Health Professions. “Their support not only provides financial assistance for our ACE students; it allows them to fulfill their dreams of becoming health care professionals."
