Nursing Scholarships Really Make a Difference

March 12, 2014

Here are some letters from the Dr. John T. Macdonald Foundation FIU Nursing Scholarship recipients 2013.  They speak for themselves.

It is with great honor and pleasure that I receive this scholarship.  It will help me to pursue and better focus on my nursing education.  Your generous help and support is greatly appreciated.  Be assured that I will strive to get the best education ever at FIU, and in return I’ll be able to help and serve the community to the best of my ability.

I’m writing this letter in appreciation of my scholarship award.  This award will allow me not only to advance my education further, but also participate in the nursing education related associations in Anesthesia.  This award will truly make the difference between not being able to and now, being able to attend my anesthesia association meeting and the advancement of my education.

I cannot begin to express my profound gratitude for your generous scholarship.  I feel truly blessed and I will treasure this gift not only to enhance my education, but also to pay it forward so that another student like me will have the opportunity to fulfill his or her dreams.  Thank you for contribution to the education of a future nurse anesthetist.  With such huge responsibilities you are helping to support me and I am grateful for that in every way.  You have made a big difference.  Thank you so much!

Thank you so much for the Dr. Frederick Poppe Nursing Scholarship award.  I truly appreciate it from the bottom of my heart.  I’m so happy I feel like crying.  This will really help me pay for school.  My parents have helped me financially and have really supported me throughout college and even though it’s really expensive they know it’s worth it.  This award is so amazing and helpful words can’t describe how grateful I am to have been chosen.  Once again thank you so much.  I can’t wait to hopefully get to meet you.

I am writing you to thank you for your generous, financial support towards my higher education.  By awarding me, I will now be able to concentrate on what is important to me, my education and my family. I hope one day I will be able to help other students achieve their goal just as you have helped me.

I greatly appreciate the scholarship funds awarded!  This award will help relieve some of the financial burden that accompanies graduate school.  With your help I can more easily focus on being successful in my studies and less stressed about costs.  Thank you again.

I would like to extend my deepest gratitude to your foundation for providing an essential service to college students in the healthcare field.  This scholarship has come as a blessing and it has helped me tremendously in the progress of my studies.  I currently do not work in order to focus on school and your scholarship has provided me and many others with the help we needed in order to pay for materials and books.  Once again I’d like to say how grateful I am for your generosity.
