Boosalis Creates Scholarship Fund to Build Nursing Pipeline

Premier Pulse     October 2021

Boosalis_HS-336x336Mary Boosalis, president and CEO of Premier Health and chair of the University of Dayton board of trustees, will establish scholarship funds at the University of Dayton and Miami Valley Hospital Foundation to benefit nursing students.

Two University of Dayton students will be the first beneficiaries of the scholarships in fall 2022. That cohort of two students will benefit from the scholarships for two consecutive years, and in their third and fourth years would then receive both financial aid and a learning/living stipend through a scholarship administered by the Miami Valley Hospital Foundation. In the fall of 2024, a second cohort of two students beginning their nursing education at UD would receive scholarships. From 2024 onward, four UD nursing students will receive financial assistance from the two funds at any one time.

As part of the arrangement, nursing students will have an opportunity to work at Miami Valley Hospital post-graduation, helping to achieve a goal of the program to build upon the region’s nursing workforce.
