Conway Scholars Selection
Trinity Washington University is pleased to announce that the application period is now open for the Joanne and William Conway Scholarship Program for high-achieving, low-income students who intend to enter the nursing profession and plan to enter college in fall 2018. Established in 2013 and now in its fifth year, the Conway Scholars program provides scholarships to young women from the District of Columbia, Prince George’s or Montgomery Counties who have high potential to complete a nursing degree at Trinity in four or five years.
Thanks to the generosity of Joanne and William Conway’s foundation, the Conway Scholarships will award $10,000 per year for up to five years of enrollment so long as the student continues to achieve at the high levels expected at entrance. With the Conway Scholarships and Trinity’s own Leadership Scholarships and other financial aid resources, Trinity will provide a financial aid package up to the total cost of enrollment depending upon the student’s financial need. The package will include federal loans, Pell Grants, and grants from state and local sources. Trinity’s estimated total cost of enrollment in Fall 2017 is $36,260 including tuition and fees, room and board, books, transportation and related expenses.
Trinity will select Conway Scholars for the Fall 2018 class. Students may apply to the Conway Scholarship program, be nominated by principals or their designees, or be selected for consideration by Trinity from among current applicants to the College of Arts and Sciences. Candidates will be evaluated on writing ability, oral expression, comportment and ability to present oneself to nursing faculty, and personal characteristics affecting one’s eligibility to participate in clinical education.
