Robert Milos has a mission to ensure great minds in Purdue University Northwest’s (PNW) esteemed College of Nursing can fulfill the dream of earning a college degree despite a temporary financial setback.
The newly established Robert Winston Milos Endowment supports nursing students who are in good academic standing and exhibit sudden emergency financial uncertainty that may delay or interrupt their academic pursuits. Milos made an initial $50,000 gift, and hopes others will be inspired to contribute and grow the fund. For students facing hardships the difficulty can be catching up, which is why the endowment will provide emergency resources discreetly and free of charge. Milos’s past gifts to PNW already have helped 42 students, according to Dr. Lisa Hopp, dean of PNW’s College of Nursing.
