“Honoring the Past – Empowering the Future”
Alumni, faculty and friends of the SIUE School of Nursing are enthusiastically stepping forward to champion the SIUE School of Nursing’s first endowed scholarship campaign. The “Honoring the Past – Empowering the Future” campaign celebrates the past fifty years and prepares for the next fifty years of excellence for the SIUE School of Nursing.
TIMELINE: Campaign Completion and Recognition Gala - April 16, 2016
NEED: With over 6,700 alumni living and working in all fifty states the time is right to ask alumni, faculty and friends to come together to support the future of baccalaureate and graduate nursing education to meet the diverse, complex and evolving healthcare needs of patients and providers in the Southern Illinois region and beyond.
GOAL: The goal is to establish $100,000 in endowed scholarships that will be there in perpetuity to attract and retain the region’s most talented, diverse and deserving students of nursing. The SIUE School of Nursing and the following groups have stepped forward to sponsor five different types of scholarships and student selection criteria to give donors the opportunity to choose a scholarship/student profile and gift level that best fits their values and interests.
GALA: To thank campaign contributors, honor Class of 1966 Alumni, showcase the S.N.A.P. Program and celebrate the success of the SIUE School of Nursing in the past, present and future a very special event will be held.

Private gifts from alumni and friends of the SIUE School of Nursing to the following funds directly impact students, faculty, outreach and research in important ways and advance the ongoing success of School.
General Development Fund
Gifts of any size to the School of Nursing’s Annual Development Fund are needed to support ongoing, important and emerging needs of the School that are not covered by state funds.
Annual Student Scholarships
There is a need to increase the number of annually funded student scholarships available for the region’s most talented and deserving nursing students. Currently a total of $20,000 is awarded annually. With over 1,200 students, the goal is to double the amount of annual scholarships.
Student Nurses Achievement Program (SNAP)
Private gifts provide the financial assistance and resources need to support academic and career success for underserved students enrolled in SNAP (a special, five-year bachelor of science in nursing program). Contributions change lives and futures, while increasing diversity in the nursing profession.
