Alumni & Giving

Introducing the Red Scrubs Scholarship

Support a Superhero in Scrubs!

Our superhero student nurses don’t wear capes. They wear red scrubs. And those cost money. So do stethoscopes, CPR certification, testing & licensing fees and other expenses most students don’t have! 

You can help relieve the financial burden on them by giving to our new Red Scrubs Scholarship. Your gift – of any size – will make it possible for our students to continue on their heroic mission of providing quality care to Hoosier families … making YOU a superhero, too!  

Please give what you can and share this page with your family, co-workers, colleagues, and friends. Then check back to our site as we fly at super speed to reach our $3,000 goal and beyond!

Alumni giving in action

Kate Pedigo Scholarship

Inspired by the hard work and dedication of Kate Pedigo, her family established this scholarship in her name for students who are returning to pursue their Bachelor of Science in Nursing through the online RN to BSN program offered by the Bloomington campus. "My family knows how much my job means to me, and how hard I worked to get my degree," says Kate. "The fact that this scholarship can support another nurse who is working just as hard is awesome!"
