Roger and Stephany Joslin established this permanently endowed scholarship fund in 1999 to provide resources to attract outstanding undergraduate and graduate students to Mennonite College of Nursing at Illinois State University. Mrs. Joslin served as a member of the Board of Trustees of Mennonite College of Nursing from 1991 to 1999, when Mennonite College of Nursing became the sixth academic college at Illinois State.
She provided the leadership to reestablish The Friends of Mennonite College of Nursing. Mrs. Joslin was the recipient of the Lewis J. Burger Outstanding Fund-raiser Award in 1998, and was named a Woman of Distinction by the YWCA in 1995, receiving the Harriet Rust Volunteer Award. The Joslins are committed to the provision of high quality nursing education through the teaching and clinical experience exemplified by Mennonite College of Nursing at Illinois State University.
The purpose of the Joslin Scholarship Fund is to provide full-tuition scholarships and fellowships that will enable outstanding undergraduate and graduate nursing students to complete their education at Mennonite College of Nursing at Illinois State University. The Joslin Scholarship Fund will help ensure that the commitment of Mr. and Mrs. Joslin to high-quality nursing education, and thus to the health and welfare of people, continues through the success of these graduates of Mennonite College of Nursing at Illinois State University.
