This event is made possible through your generous donation. If you’d like to support the MU Sinclair School of Nursing and our annual nursing award ceremony, your donation is welcome! Gifts made in the form of sponsorship are tax deductible. A list of corporate and individual sponsorship opportunities to be forthcoming.

Corporate Sponsorships

Our corporate sponsorship opportunities are designed with a business in mind. Our goal is to partner with healthcare organizations in order to showcase your organization and connect you with some of the most talented and brightest nursing students and alumni in the nation, Mizzou Nurses! In addition to the “perks” of your sponsorship, you will have an opportunity to mingle and network with students, alumni, faculty, staff and the interim dean of the nursing school, Dr. Lori Popejoy.

Individual Sponsorships

A sponsorship from an individual helps us to continue this time-honored tradition of recognizing our best and brightest students and alumni who have served their school and community. This is an incredible opportunity for you to show your tried and true tiger stripes and make an impact in the lives of our dedicated students and alumni who have worked hard for the recognition they will be receiving.
