The Catholic University of America has received a $20 million donation to assist 160 nursing students at its nursing school over the next five years.
According to the university, the $20 million donation was made by Bill and Joanne Conway, the two largest benefactors to the university in its history. The Conways had previously donated $60 million to the Conway School of Nursing, named after them in 2019 in recognition of their generosity.
“Our Conway School of Nursing has long been a source of great pride to the University. We are so grateful to Bill and Joanne for all they have done to contribute to its success,” said Catholic University of America President John Garvey. “I am confident that the Conway School will become the gold standard for nursing education in this country.”
The Conways’ previous gifts of $20 million in 2019 and in 2020 were the largest single gifts in the school’s history.
