Hedrick Medical Center Auxiliary now Accepting Applications for 2019 Scholarships

February 12, 2019

The Hedrick Medical Center Auxiliary is pleased to announce the continuation of the scholarship program for area residents. Students already enrolled in or admitted to a degree program in a health care field are eligible for the scholarship.

The Hedrick Medical Center Auxiliary Scholarship Fund was established in 1998 for the purpose of encouraging qualified individuals to pursue or enrich a career in the health care field. Scholarships are awarded annually. To date, $82,500 scholarships have been awarded to area students.

Each $500 scholarship requires recipients to share their grades and/or school status if requested by the Auxiliary. A student may apply for and receive this award each year throughout his/her degree program.

In order to be eligible for the scholarship candidates must have been accepted into an accredited 2 or 4 year college or university health care program and must provide a copy of the acceptance letter from the college or university they are attending.

Applications also require biographical information, a short essay, and two letters of recommendation. 

The HMC Auxiliary Scholarship is open to anyone meeting the above criteria whose permanent address falls in one of the following into a zip code that begins with 646xx.
