The Cultivating Undergraduate Nursing Resilience and Equity (CURE) program is a new fellowship program designed to provide financial, social, and academic support to sophomore-level nursing students from underrepresented backgrounds. CURE Fellows receive:

* Financial support of up to $12,000 per year (based on financial need) to offset the cost of tuition, fees, books, housing and other educational expenses.

* Academic support via supplemental instruction/tutoring sessions, individualized student advising sessions, workshops on test-tasking, study skills, money management, and navigating university life.

* Community support through monthly CURE-specific social events, interactions with campus community organizations, mentorship, career planning help, and special engagement opportunities with local experts in the healthcare field.

* Maintain good academic standing within the College of Nursing
