Nannette Dahlgren Scholarship
The nursing program at Ivy Tech Evansville is considered by many to be one of the finest in the region. Our graduating classes have some of the highest pass rates on the nursing board exam, and our alumni are making significant advances in health care throughout our community. Ivy Tech Evansville’s reputation has been greatly strengthened as a result of this program.
Nannette Dahlgren aspired to be a registered nurse. She began studying nursing at Ivy Tech Evansville, while raising her three children as a single parent. Nannette's life was suddenly cut short in 2009 due to a blood clot after having pneumonia. She was only 44 years old.
Her parents, Tom and Diane Voss, created an annual scholarship in her memory. The Nannette Dahlgren Memorial Scholarship supports a single parent pursuing nursing at Ivy Tech Evansville. It also serves as a wonderful legacy to Nannette, who was lovingly referred to by her classmates as the "class mom". That's where we need you.
The Voss family and Ivy Tech Foundation are asking for your support to help more students wishing to become a nurse and help us pave the way for the next generation. A gift of any amount will make a difference in supporting our students as they prepare to care for our community's sick.
