Fort HealthCare Partners have announced that two $1000 scholarships will be awarded to qualified applicants enrolled in an Associate Degree nursing program. Applicants must be actively enrolled and taking classes in an Associate Degree nursing program. Nursing students who are currently on a waiting list are not eligible to apply.
Applicants should have a grade point average of at least 2.75, and live or be employed in the Fort HealthCare service area. Preference will be given to applicants with work experience in health care and applicants showing a strong financial need.
Applications are available in the volunteer services department at Fort Memorial Hospital or at FortHealthCare.com/Scholarships. Applications must be postmarked by July 1, 2011 to be considered.
Fort HealthCare Partners awards $12,000 in health career scholarships annually, and provides funding for new equipment, new services and patient education. Additionally the Partners organization provides volunteer services that supplement the basic functions of hospital staff by making a patient’s stay more pleasant.
Fort HealthCare Partners is a voluntary organization dedicated to promoting the interests of Fort HealthCare and its patients. Volunteers donate their time and energy to help others, enjoy
opportunities to learn new skills, get a better understanding of the health field, and use some of their free time more productively.
Persons interested in more information about Partners scholarships or volunteering may call Kari Behling, volunteer services manager at (920) 568-5276. New volunteers are always welcome.
