Donna Vredevoe Memorial Fund

The Donna Vredevoe Memorial Scholarship

In Memoriam: We Celebrate Your Legacy

Dr. Donna Vredevoe's legacy is one of scientific scholarship, mentorship, leadership and service to faculty and students.

Donna Vredevoe had a distinguished career as a member of the School of Nursing faculty, chair of the Academic Senate and Vice Chancellor for Academic Personnel. A great funded researcher in her own right, her teaching of the scientific basis for nursing practice was foundational. Dr. Vredevoe's commitment to academic quality continues to serve as a testament to the countless people she counseled and inspired during her lifetime.

To commemorate her impressive record of scholarship and, in particular, her mentorship to both students and young faculty in the development of their research programs, the Donna Vredevoe Memorial Scholarship was established.

The Donna Vredevoe Memorial Scholarship will support future leaders of nursing who can carry on that which Dr. Vredevoe knew to be the promise of clinical care and nursing research.

If we can reach our goal of $100,000 we can endow this scholarship so it can live in perpetuity, changing the lives of future researchers for generations to come.

I invite you to remember Dr. Vredevoe as an outstanding colleague and mentor by making a contribution today to the Donna Vredevoe Memorial Scholarship.

Your donation will be used to award meaningful scholarships to students entering a challenging career in nursing.

Donations of any size are welcome and all donations are tax deductible.
