TWU College of Nursing receives $550,000 to establish scholarship endowment


DENTON — Texas Woman’s University’s College of Nursing has been awarded $550,000 from the Helene Fuld Health Trust, HSBC Bank USA, N.A., Trustee to establish a scholarship endowment for undergraduate students pursuing nursing baccalaureate degrees.

The Helene Fuld Health Trust Scholarship Fund for Baccalaureate Nursing Students will provide $550,000 to TWU over a three-year period, of which $500,000 is to be held in a permanent endowment fund. The remainder of the initial grant funding and future income from the endowment will be used for scholarships for nursing students beginning in fall 2006.

“We are proud that our College of Nursing, students and faculty were deemed worthy of this extraordinary grant,” said Dr. Marcia Hern, dean of TWU’s College of Nursing.

The Helene Fuld Health Trust’s mission is to support and promote the health, welfare, and education of student nurses. The Fuld Health Trust is the nation’s largest private funder devoted exclusively to nursing students and nursing education. In 1935, Dr Leonhard Felix Fuld and his sister, Florentine, created a foundation in honor of their mother, Helene. In 1965, the foundation was converted to the Helene Fuld Health Trust, and in 1969 HSBC Bank USA, N.A. (formerly Marine Midland Bank) became its corporate trustee. HSBC Bank USA, N.A. is currently responsible for overseeing and administering the Fuld Trust.

With more than 12,000 alumni and more than 2,300 undergraduate and graduate students in Denton, Dallas and Houston, TWU has the largest college of nursing in Texas and produces more new nurses than any other program in the state.
