Dean's Scholar Program



The Dean’s Scholar Program is open to any Goldfarb School of Nursing at Barnes-Jewish College undergraduate or graduate student(s) who demonstrate an interest in the nursing profession and the pursuit of excellence in nursing. This travel award is provided to offset general expenses to attend a nursing conference or meeting that addresses the fulfillment of these basic concepts.

The maximum funding available is $1000 per student during an academic year. There will be up to 20 proposals accepted per year. Proposals will be considered in the order of their submission. Once funds have been exhausted for that academic year, acceptance of proposals will be discontinued.


  • Must be a Goldfarb School of Nursing student in academic good standing
  • Must be currently enrolled in courses at Goldfarb School of Nursing at the time of submission of the proposal and attending the conference/meeting
  • A student may only receive one Dean’s Scholar Award during their program of study

Submission Due Date

In order to provide full consideration for proposals, it is recommended that they be submitted at least 60 days prior to the event. Later submissions could be subject to disapproval.
