Health Career Scholarship Applications Deadline is April 15
The deadline to apply for a health career scholarship awarded by the Mid Coast Hospital Auxiliary is April 15. Applications and information can be found at, www.midcoasthealth.com/volunteer
Guidance departments at area high schools also have applications.
The Auxiliary annually awards $40,000 to worthy Mid Coast students pursuing health careers, with scholarships renewable for four years, depending on academic achievement and maintenance of a health career major.
Student applicants may be graduating from high school, in college, changing careers, or upgrading educations.
Funds for the scholarships are raised through the used book sale April 3 and 4, the yard sale May 16-18, bake sales, holiday bazaar, and book signings.
"This is a real community effort,” said Linda Fairfield, chair of the Auxiliary scholarship committee.
"We thank the many hospital supporters who make these scholarships happen.”
