Unity Health Foundation Scholarship Applications Available

The Unity Health Foundation (formerly White County Medical Foundation) and Unity Health – White County Medical Center Auxiliary have announced that applications are now available for the 2015 Scholarship Program. Applicants must be a resident of White County or the child of a Unity Health Associate who works at Unity Health - White County Medical Center, Unity Health - Specialty Care, the Unity Health Foundation, or any of the Unity Health Clinics located in White County.

The Foundation scholarships were established as memorials for a loved one, or in memory or in honor of people who made great contributions to medicine in White County.

Fifteen $1,000 scholarships will be awarded to graduating seniors or associates going into healthcare-related fields of study, including computer applications, accounting, or other business careers. Applicants are required to complete an application and submit a certified/official copy of high school (7th semester) or college transcript, an official copy of ACT score from school, a copy of the letter of acceptance from college attending, a letter of recommendation from an academic source, and two letters of character references.

“We think it’s important for the Auxiliary to give back,” said Auxiliary President June Tripp. “The purpose is to provide money to those who want to pursue careers in healthcare and our hope is that awareness is heightened about this scholarship opportunity for those who are seeking to further their education in a healthcare related field.”

Completed applications and all supporting materials are due to the Unity Health Foundation Office at 1200 S. Main St, Searcy, AR 72143, no later than Wednesday, March 18, 2015 at 4:30 p.m.

Applications are available through all high school counselors in White County or the Foundation Office. For more information, please contact Allison Galbreath at (501) 278-8570 or via email at foundation@wcmc.org
