Janet Lindner Scholarship Fund

The Lindner Scholarship is one of many scholarships and awards UB Nursing offers in order to attract and retain the very best nursing students.

Retired nurse Bonnie Sturniolo established the Janet Lindner Scholarship to pay tribute to her aunt, a UB Nursing graduate who had enlisted in the U.S. Army during World War II. Lindner worked as a public health coordinator for Buffalo General Hospital and taught at the UB nursing school.

The scholarship gave Michelle Klimpt time to serve in the Nursing Student Organization, which piloted 12 new events for nursing students. It also meant more time for studying.

“It has been such a gift, given the amount of time I have to commit to my clinical schedule,” said Klimpt, who completed a preceptorship at Mercy Hospital’s labor and delivery department. Her passion to work in women’s health care has led her to enroll in the doctoral nursing program at UB.
