Welcome to Arkansas State University!

The Dorothy Snider Foundation

The Dorothy Snider Foundation has presented a $25,000 gift to Arkansas State University to continue providing scholarships for students pursing a Master of Science in Nursing degree, family nurse practitioner option, in the College of Nursing and Health Professions.

The foundation awards over $250,000 in scholarships annually to students in select counties in Arkansas and Tennessee, supporting educational endeavors in the areas of medicine, law, theology, business or any of the natural sciences or scientific fields.


The Dorothy Snider Foundation has generously supported our family nurse practitioner students, and these stipends help our students defray college debt and keep them on a path for graduation. We are grateful for their generosity and support of health professions education.  These scholarships are able to impact multiple students within our region and their care as future healthcare providers will be far-reaching in generations to come.
