The Ann and Matt Fennell Scholarship Fund was established to honor Ann and Matt’s legacy and to support the education of the next generation.

After attending St. Joseph’s School of Nursing in Elmira, N.Y., and working as a surgical nurse at Georgetown Hospital in Washington D.C., Ann returned to Elmira to marry Matt and start their life together. In 1977, Ann and Matt moved to El Paso with their 10 children.

From Matt opening and managing Westinghouse Electric, and Ann returning to school to renew her nursing certification, the couple was devoted to the community in which they lived.

Inspired by Ann’s career in nursing, and the kindness and dedication of nurses who cared for Ann and Matt throughout their lives, the family is pleased to share a scholarship opportunity for students pursuing a career in nursing.

The Ann and Matt Fennell Scholarship Fund is for students pursuing an education in nursing; Traditional BSN or RN to BSN degree plans at The University of Texas at El Paso and the Gayle Greve Hunt School of Nursing; and who have demonstrated high achievement in academics. Priority will be given to students who have already been accepted into a nursing program and/or are enrolled in Phase 3/final phase of the program.
