This year, two Gwynedd Mercy Nursing students are recipients of the IBX Foundation Healthcare Scholars Program.

The Independence Blue Cross (IBX) Foundation recently announced the expansion of its IBX Foundation Healthcare Scholars Program.

The program is designed to create an education pathway for underrepresented groups who wish to become nurses by providing four and two-year scholarships to students pursuing a bachelor’s or associate’s degree in nursing.

This year, two Gwynedd Mercy Nursing students, Aja Foster and Amanda De La Rosa are recipients of the rewards.

The two attended the IBX Foundation Healthcare Scholars ceremony on August 17 in Philadelphia. Aja, along with Dr. Jane Tang, the new Dean of GMercyU’s Frances M. Maguire School of Nursing and Health Professions.

“I am proud of our students for receiving this honor and excited for the opportunities they will be getting for entering into the Nursing Program,” shared Dr. Tang.

Both Aja and Amanda chose Gwynedd Mercy for its long history of excellence in nursing education and look forward to pursuing their passions.

“The involvement that Gwynedd Mercy University has within the community through acts of service is something that I am without a doubt excited to be a part of as I begin my nursing program this fall,” said Amanda De La Rosa.
