Joliet, Ill. – Three students pursuing a family nurse practitioner (FNP) degree at the University of St. Francis (USF) have recently been named recipients of the CVS Health Foundation Scholarship. Each of the students – Chao Moua, Eva Cybulski, and Renalda Tomic – were awarded a $1,000 scholarship that has been credited toward their student accounts.

USF’s Leach College of Nursing administered the application and selection process at the university level. Applicants are required to be students in good standing in the FNP program. Additional consideration was given to students who are military veterans, as well as those who are bilingual or a member of a minority or underserved population.

“We are appreciative of the financial support offered to our students through the CVS Health Foundation FNP/PA Scholarship Program. The investment that this support makes locally continues to be paid forward as our graduates continue to serve our communities,” said USF Leach College of Nursing dean Ebere Ume, Ph.D., MSN, R.N., PHN.
