Scholarship programs

Elizabeth Spelman Scholarship Fund

The Auxiliary contributes annually to the Elizabeth Spelman Scholarship Fund. This fund awards scholarships to graduating high school seniors pursuing careers in health care.

The Elizabeth Spelman Health Career Scholarship program was established in 1968 by the late Dr. Arch E. Spelman in memory of his mother and is underwritten by the auxiliary and medical staff of Saint Luke's North Hospital. Dr. Spelman was instrumental in the development of the hospital in Smithville, formerly known as Spelman Memorial Hospital, now known as Saint Luke's North Hospital - Smithville Campus. Twelve scholarships are awarded in the amount of $2,000 each to be applied toward tuition, fees and/or books. 

Because of our hospital's long history of service to the Northland, applicants for these scholarships must have a current and valid address in one of the following Missouri counties: Clay, Platte, or Clinton. 

We are accepting applications now through 3 pm on Tuesday, February 20, 2024.

Certification Reimbursement Scholarship Program

The Auxiliary also provides financial assistance to hospital employees seeking certification to advance their skill sets.
