The Grant Regional Health Center Foundation, Lancaster, WI, will award two $1,000 healthcare scholarships to successful applicants in 2023.
Eligibility to apply: Those eligible to apply include individuals beginning or continuing their enrollment in a healthcare program at a fully accredited two- or four-year college between late May and Fall of 2023. This is open to graduating high school students and current college students.
Priority will be given to residents in the school districts of Cassville, Fennimore, Iowa-Grant, Lancaster, Potosi or River Ridge. Or children of GRHC employees residing outside of our service area. Individuals who previously received a GRHC Foundation scholarship are not eligible to apply for a second time. This scholarship is separate from the GRHC Auxiliary or Brokopp Family Healthcare Scholarship.
A selection committee will evaluate applicants for the two - $1,000 healthcare scholarships based on their:
- intent to pursue a career in the healthcare profession;
- academic achievement (grades);
- involvement in school and/or community activities;
- commitment to their chosen field;
- demonstrated integrity and work ethic.
Before beginning the application, please have the items listed below prepared to either upload or copy/paste into the form. The form is not capable of saving progress, all information should be completed on the first attempt.
To apply you will need: Your general information, 3 letters of recommendation, transcript, essay (see description below).
On the essay, please state why you have chosen to go into the healthcare field, what you intend to do once you have received your degree, and how you think this scholarship will help you achieve this goal. Your essay is important, please take considerable time crafting this piece. It should be a reflection of you, your goals, and why you feel that you should receive the scholarship. We’re also highly interested in students wishing to return to Grant Regional Health Center’s workforce.
It is the responsibility of the applicant to make sure all necessary requirements are met and that all paperwork is submitted at the same time by the deadline. Late applications will not be accepted.
