CFCC exceeds goal to raise $1 million for nursing scholarships
Wilmington, NC – Cape Fear Community College is thrilled to announce that we have raised $1,046,994 for nursing scholarships, thanks to the generous support of individual and corporate donors in the community. This amount will provide an additional 52 nursing scholarships for our students, bringing the total number of nursing scholarships to approximately 130 per year.
CFCC’s nursing programs are highly respected and have been recognized for producing some of the best nurses in the region and across the state. These programs are dedicated to providing education and hands-on skill experiences to students to prepare them to enter the workforce and fill a demand for skilled nursing professionals.
“I continue to be inspired by the generosity of our community and their support of Cape Fear Community College,” said Jim Morton, CFCC President. “I believe that investing in our nursing students through scholarship opportunities not only benefits the individual student but also has a ripple effect on the entire community. By providing financial support, we are enabling students to pursue a career in nursing and helping to address the critical shortage of healthcare professionals in our region.”
“We are thrilled to have surpassed our goal of raising one million dollars for nursing scholarships,” said Shane Fernando, CFCC Vice President of Advancement and the Arts. “Our community’s commitment to supporting the next generation of nurses is astonishing. With these funds, we can provide more scholarships to deserving students and help them achieve their career goals.”
Nursing scholarships are open to all students enrolled in one of CFCC’s nursing programs who demonstrate financial need. The scholarships cover tuition, books, uniforms, and other expenses associated with pursuing their nursing degree.
CFCC plans to continue raising funds for the nursing scholarship program and hopes to increase the number of scholarships awarded. To donate, visit cfcc.edu/foundation/give. For questions about the campaign, email firstname.lastname@example.org .
