Thanks to the generosity of Joanne and William Conway’s foundation, the Conway Scholarships will award $10,000 per year for the freshman and sophomore years, and $15,000 for the junior and senior years. With the Conway Scholarships and Trinity’s own Leadership 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 Joanne and William Conway Scholarship Program is for high-achieving, low-income students who intend to enter the nursing profession. The program provides scholarships to young women from the District of Columbia, Prince George’s or Montgomery Counties who have high potential to complete a nursing degree at Trinity in four or five years.
