The David N. Nurco Memorial Scholarship fund was established in May 2000 as a tribute to David Nurco, D.S.W. It provides merti-based scholarships for students seeking advanced degrees in the field of social work at the Catholic University of America in Washington, D.C. With the help of contributions from family, colleagues, and friends who knew and appreciated Dr. Nurco’s passion for research, the Fund continues to grow and help more and more worthy students.

Please consider making a tax-deductible contribution to the Nurco Scholarship fund. You are invited to forward your check, payable to Friends Research Institute, to Friends Research Institute, Inc., 1040 Park Avenue, Suite 103, Baltimore, MD 21201. Thank You.
