Houston Healthcare Scholarship Applications Now Available
For the past eight years, Houston Healthcare has given a $1,000 scholarship to a graduating Senior at each of the high schools in Houston County, the Career Academy and the Westfield School who intend to work in a healthcare-related field. We are pleased to be able to provide this scholarship again this year. The guidelines for the scholarship are based on the following criteria:
The student must be accepted for enrollment in either a two or four-year college program with the expressed intent to obtain a degree in a healthcare-related field such as Nursing, Pharmacy or Physical/Occupational Therapy.
The student must have a minimum high school GPA of 3.0 and have demonstrated his or her commitment to school and community activities. Working part-time or as a volunteer in a healthcare setting would be considered an excellent demonstration of interest in the healthcare field.
The student must complete and submit the application to their guidance counselor, along with a letter of recommendation from a principal, teacher or counselor.
The student must submit an essay (no more than two pages typed and double spaced) communicating his or her interest and desire in pursuing an education and career in healthcare.
The scholarship will be paid directly to the student. The student must agree that the funds distributed by Houston Healthcare will be used exclusively for educational purposes. If for any reason it is determined the funds are misused, the student agrees to pay back the entire amount to Houston Healthcare.
The application must be filled out completely and all the necessary requested documents must be provided in order for the application to be considered. The deadline for submission is Monday, March 25.
After completion, all materials can be mailed to Mary Stanley, Marketing, 1601 Watson Boulevard, Warner Robins, Georgia 31093. For additional questions regarding the scholarship, please contact the Marketing Department at 975-6585.
