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, $97,500 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 program acceptance letter from the college or university they are attending.
Applications also require biographical information, a short essay, and two letters of recommendation.
