Fuld Service Learning Fellows

Nursing Student with Children

Serving While Learning

The Fuld Service Learning Fellowship provides a 50% tuition scholarship for Accelerated BSN+MSN (ABSN+MSN) students who have a special commitment to social responsibility as acomponent of professional nursing practice. Candidates should have a prior history of social responsibility activities and have definitive plans to work with under-served populations in the United States or abroad. The Fuld Service Learning Fellowship provides for 50 percent tuition to cover four (4) semester of the baccalaureate program and four (4) semester of the master’s program.

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 and Social Responsibility. After graduation, Fuld Fellows will re-enter their careers as master’s prepared nurses with a deep working knowledge of health issues for vulnerable people in the US and internationally, coupled with a strong sense of direction and mission for realistically addressing these problems.

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