Alumni & Giving

Thank you for supporting the Red Scrubs Scholarship

We're so grateful for the gift of YOU!

 The Red Scrubs Scholarship was established to help our student nurses with a demonstrated financial need pay for expenses such as stethoscopes, testing and licensing fees…even their red scrubs themselves. Thanks to generous donors across Indiana and the nation, our Red Scrubs Scholarship has been a tremendous success, with many students receiving scholarships. We - the IU School of Nursing students, faculty, and staff - are so thankful for the gift of you for making it possible to offer even more financial assistance to students in need!

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!"

Announcing the 1st Kate Pedigo Scholarship winner

IUSON BL salutes Terre Haute’s Whitney Snyder on becoming our first Kate Pedigo Scholarship winner! In only her junior year, Whitney has already earned a degree in Human Biology before starting on her BSN, becoming the first member of her family to attend a four-year college (let alone earning a second degree!). Whitney regularly makes the 60-mile commute from Terre Haute to IU Health Bloomington Hospital, where she works full time in the ICU, while enrolled as a full-time student. 

Congratulations, Whitney, on this well-deserved award!
