Joanne and William Conway Establish Nursing Scholarship Program at Trinity Washington University


Trinity Washington University President Patricia McGuire announced the establishment of the Joanne and William Conway Scholarship Program for high-achieving, low-income students who intend to enter the nursing profession. Through their foundation, Joanne and William Conway pledged a commitment of $2.8 million to provide scholarships to young women from the District of Columbia, Prince George’s and Montgomery Counties who have high potential to complete a nursing degree at Trinity in four or five years.

“The Trinity community is deeply grateful to Joanne and William Conway, who, through their Bedford Falls Foundation, generously support aspiring nurses in the District of Columbia and close-in Maryland communities,” said President McGuire. “The Conways keenly understand that for low-income students in this area, nursing is a path to both economic stability and a rewarding career in the growing health care field. Their extraordinary commitment to improving the economic status of low-income families through higher education is exemplary. The Conway Scholarship Program will be transformational for Trinity because it gives us the opportunity to provide high-achieving, low-income young women with the financial support they need, combined with the academic structure of a cohort group, to ensure the successful completion of their nursing degrees.”

The Conway Scholarships will award $10,000 per year to each student for up to five years of enrollment as long as the student continues to achieve at the high levels expected at entrance. With the Conway Scholarships and Trinity’s own merit scholarships and other financial aid resources, Trinity will provide a financial aid package up to the total cost of enrollment depending upon the student’s financial need. The package will include federal loans, Pell Grants, and grants from state and local sources. Trinity’s estimated total cost of enrollment in Fall 2013 is $34,500 including tuition and fees, room and board, books, transportation and related expenses.
