Special Notes During the last few months of life, William Bergman was fortunate to be cared for by wonderful nurses. During this time, it became evident that many nurses were in need of completing their Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) program in order to advance in their nursing careers. This scholarship was William's idea and wish at the end of his life. Through Kathryn's (a 1969 graduate of UW-Eau Claire) continued generosity, the wish has now become a reality. This scholarship will fund a 3 credit course, each semester, for a deserving BSN Completion student.
Thank You Thank you letters are to be addressed to Kathryn Bergman and should detail the courses they are taking and their nursing goals. Letters are to be sent in care of the UW-Eau Claire Foundation.
