Ten students in Sacred Heart University’s doctor of nursing practice (DNP) program have received $2,500 each from the Paul L. Jones Foundation. The scholarships were based on merit and need, requiring the candidates to maintain a GPA of 3.8 or higher in the DNP program and to be in good financial standing with the University.
Sacred Heart University has achieved recognition from the Military Times and College Factual organizations as a top school for veterans. “Sacred Heart University is dedicated to our military heroes and their families,” said Kathy Dilks, director of graduate, international and veteran student affairs. “The University and its dedicated team members who work with veterans make a concerted effort to create a seamless process from the moment they consider SHU, to the point of graduation and beyond. We are there step by step to encourage and assist. We are pleased to be recognized for the great work that is done for these amazing students.”
Sacred Heart University alumna Pam Pillo, who formerly served as executive director of graduate admissions, is returning to Sacred Heart to assume the role of executive director of undergraduate admissions. With more than 10 years of professional experience in higher education and an extensive student recruitment background, Pillo, a Monroe resident, will be responsible for planning, directing and coordinating admissions activities to advance SHU’s mission and enrollment goals.
