Lee Health and Florida Gulf Coast University Nursing Scholarship

Jennifer Higgins

Thank you for your interest in the Lee Health Florida Gulf University Nursing Scholarship! This scholarship is made possible through the Linking Industry to Nursing Education (LINE) grant from the state of Florida and the Lee Health Foundation, and it helps us invest in and contribute to the nursing education of current or prospective employees who have been accepted to Florida Gulf Coast University’s School of Nursing. 

Along with the financial support, the recipients of this scholarship will experience our culture and commitment to nursing here at Lee Health through participation in activities to enrich your nursing educational experience and prepare you for your practice beyond graduation. These activities include exposure to educational speakers, conferences, symposiums and interdisciplinary rounds, as well as clinical rotations in our facilities to gain exposure to your practice environment preference. I invite you to check out the specifics of the scholarship program, and I encourage you to apply.

At Lee Health, our nurses are the heart of our team, and we are focused on strengthening and enhancing shared governance, ensuring our nurses are heard and empowered to lead at every level. We want Lee Health to be a place where nurses come to grow, develop their expertise and pursue their calling. This scholarship is one way we can partner with you to do just that.


On behalf of Lee Health, we would like to introduce our commitment with Florida Gulf Coast University to offer you the opportunity to realize your dreams and fulfill your goal of obtaining your nursing degree!

Education is one of our core values, we encourage learning and strive for excellence all while upholding the highest standards of safety, quality and deliver an exceptional experience.
