The Windom Area Health Foundation is again offering several $1,000 contining education scholarships to local students who are interested in pursuing a career in a healthcare field.
Scholarships are awarded based on leadership, character, integrity, community service and a commitment to following a course of study relevant to healthcare. Students must have a GPA of 3.0, or be officially accepted into a healthcare program in order to be eligible for the scholarships.
Recipients may apply for scholarships in subsequent years, as the foundation intends to continue the program in the future.
Again this year, the WAH Foundation is partnering with Sanford Health Network for an additional scholarship opportunity. Select recipients of the WAH Foundation scholarships will have their applications forwarded on to Sanford Health for consideration for an additional $1,000 scholarship.
Students who are selected for the scholarships will be asked to submit a photograph for use in future newsletters and marketing materials.
Online applications are due April 11. Applications are available under the Foundation section of the Windom Area Health website at www.windomareahealth.org. Select “Foundation Scholarships” on the side menu and follow the link to the Sanford Health Scholarships page. Select “Health Network Scholarships” and fill out the application.
You will be required to write an essay, provide proof of enrollment, your transcript and three recommendations.
