Gratitude inspires
stories of hope


Through scholarships, you are changing lives by making the dream of becoming a nurse possible. We are honored by your philanthropy. Your gifts help prepare the next generation of nursing professionals—our Heroes in Training, at Goldfarb School of Nursing at Barnes-Jewish College. Your generosity reinforces our mission to prepare exceptional nurse leaders in an academic learner-centered environment. Thank you!

Now you can impact the future of nursing!

Nursing school comes with a cost, and for many people who aspire to be nurses and educators, the financial burden can be prohibitive. The Heroes in Training Scholarship Fund was created to provide assistance to the extraordinary individuals, our Heroes in Training, who have chosen to enter a profession that touches the heart and soul of health care: nursing. While nursing continues to change to meet both current and future circumstances and challenges, there is one constant: heroism. 

“Pre-COVID, the critical roles nurses play in a health care setting might have gone unrecognized by some. Today, health care and other essential workers have emerged as our nation’s heroes,” said Dr. Mayola Rowser, Jack Taylor Dean and Professor of Goldfarb School of Nursing at Barnes-Jewish College. “Although our students don’t see themselves as heroes, our Heroes in Training (HITs) know that they are part of something remarkable and understand the huge responsibility that comes with nursing.” 

Please invest in our students by giving to the Heroes in Training Scholarship Fund! Scholarships are life-changing for our students, the patients that they will ultimately serve, and the future of health care.

To make a gift, please call Marilyn Sheperd at 314-286-2241 or give online. Please indicate "Scholarship" in the gray "Other" box on the giving form.
