Golden Lamp Society Fund Scholarships

Each year, thanks to the generosity of donors to the Golden Lamp Society Fund, a number of scholarships are awarded to deserving nursing students. The Golden Lamp Society celebrates individuals and families who support Rush University College of Nursing and its students with annual gifts of $300 or more. Gifts made to support the Golden Lamp Society Fund are eligible for recognition in the Golden Lamp Society. 
 
Applications for the 2018 scholarships are now being accepted, and the deadline is Wednesday, March 7, 2018.
 
Applicants may apply to multiple awards, and priority will be given to those
students who have yet to receive GLS funds. An online application form must be
submitted along with all supplemental materials to Mariela Hernandez in the
College of Nursing at Mariela_Hernandez@rush.edu.
 
All recipients will be invited to attend the Golden Lamp Society Annual Luncheon on Thursday, April 19, 2018 at Rush.
