Fund

Dr. Stephen and Mrs. Angela Hernandez Endowed Fund

This fund supports students who are currently serving in the active or reserve component of the US Armed Forces, US Public Health Service Commissioned Corps, or a veteran of the US Armed Forces who has been discharged under honorable conditions. Preference is given to students enrolled in a PhD program at the UNM College of Nursing.

Dr. Hernandez, and his wife, Angela, established this fund out of a desire to give back to their community and the students at UNM College of Nursing. Dr. Hernandez’ military service provided him with experiences and opportunities that he believes improved his abilities as an educator and nurse. He also benefitted from scholarships while completing his PhD at UNM CON. To honor Dr. Hernandez’ mentor, Dr. Mark Parshall, the US Public Health Service Commissioned Corp is included in the scholarship criteria.
