- Baylor University LHSON Mission Fund
Mexico to Africa, this fund helps Baylor nursing students put their
faith and compassion into practical action by providing medical
supplies, medicines, portions of airfare and the experience of a
lifetime for both undergraduate and graduate students as they participate in medical mission trips around the world.
- Good Samaritan Dean’s Fund
to meet urgent needs of individual students or the Nursing School as a
whole, the Good Samaritan Dean’s Fund is used to cover those inevitable
but unexpected situations that arise throughout the year, such as a
student’s difficult circumstance that renders him/her unable to buy
textbooks or the need to replace daily-used lab equipment.

endowed scholarship that will benefit future LHSON students in
- Louise Herrington School of Nursing Current Scholarship Fund
with its name, this fund is used to provide scholarship support for
current Baylor nursing students and is a perfect outlet for those who
want their gift, combined with existing scholarships, to undergird
today’s Baylor nursing students. The need for scholarship support during spring semesters is especially great.
- Missionary Family Nurse Practitioner (FNP) Program
several-week mission trip -- whether here in the States or in the heart of
Africa -- is part of the curriculum for every Baylor FNP master’s
candidate. Helping them be the hands and feet of Christ among those in
need, funds from this program assist graduate students with travel costs
and medical supplies for this life-changing experience.

campus building repairs and expansion and much more.
