Rae Farrell Memorial Scholarship

It's an exciting time for Nursing at Montana Tech. We are one of only two public universities in the state to offer a 120-credit pre licensure option and we offer a 48-credit post licensure option for currently licensed registered nurses. Our instructors have real world nursing experience and students are able to learn not only in the classroom but also state of the art simulation labs and clinical settings. At Montana Tech, we have a passion for nursing and are proud to prepare tomorrow’s healers today.

Our program is growing and as it does, so does the need for Nursing scholarships to support our students, and that is why we are asking you to give today to the Rae Farrell Memorial Scholarship.

In March of 2016 the Nursing Department suddenly and tragically lost one of our own. Along with being a certified nurse midwife Rae Farrell was a beloved associate professor in the Nursing department at Montana Tech. She loved animals and wearing tie-dyed shirts. She loved Dave Matthews and eating an ice cream cone everyday. She loved to laugh and had a huge heart. And Rae loved nursing. She loved being a nurse, she loved learning and she loved taking what she learned and passing that to new generations of nurses.

We feel the best way to honor the passion Rae had for Nursing is to carry it on.  The Rae Farrell Memorial Scholarship allows us to do that, by awarding a scholarship each year to a Montana Tech Nursing student. Offering a helping hand to the students that need it, just like she always did.

Please consider donating today to The Rae Farrell Memorial Scholarship to help support future generations of healers here at Montana Tech.

Thank you for your support and please help us spread the word! Share this project on social media, by email and tell your friends!
