2021 Rubert Scholar Graduates
June 29, 2021
Congratulations on the graduation of the William and Theresa M. Rubert Memorial Scholarship Trust recipients.
Theresa Rubert entered Hahnemann Hospital School of Nursing in 1926. With the help of a small loan from her sister, she was able to meet her tuition expenses and successfully complete her studies as a graduate nurse. To show her appreciation for her sister's loan, which made her education possible, this scholarship was established to provide help with tuition for nursing students in the College of Nursing and Health Professions.
This scholarship is available to first-degree students who maintain full-time enrollment in the BSN Cooperative Education undergraduate nursing program and maintain acceptable clinical performance. Students must be going into their pre-junior or junior year with a 3.0 GPA and demonstrate a significant financial need. They must also satisfactorily complete their community service.
More than 72 Rubert scholarships have been awarded to-date having a value of over two million dollars. Individual scholarships may vary, but students are generally awarded $10,000/year for tuition, fees and housing.
The four Rubert Scholars who were part of the Class of 2021 graduates are:
Nicole Cannon: four-year co-op.
Julie Kim: four-year co-op.
Alyse Noll: five-year co-op.
Youngeun Park: five-year co-op.
