School of Nursing donors experienced firsthand the impact their philanthropy in support of financial aid is making at the Johns Hopkins University School of Nursing’s Scholar-Donor Luncheon. On March 6, 2012, 75 donors and scholars attended the annual event which celebrates the achievements of the School’s outstanding scholars and recognizes the generosity of its donors. Student recipients of named scholarships and their donors were able to meet, learn about one another, and share their experiences.
Grace Ho, a second-year doctoral student and one of the speakers at the event, said, “The donors’ support plays a crucial role in building character and preparing future nurse leaders.” Ho also expressed her appreciation for the opportunity to participate in research projects made possible by the financial support she receives through the Ellen Levi Zamoiski Doctoral Fellowship.
