Community Hospital-Fairfax announces that scholarship opportunities for students are now available.
Students pursuing a career in healthcare are encouraged to apply for the Community Hospital-Fairfax Development Council and Auxiliary Healthcare Educational Scholarships. These scholarships provide assistance with healthcare education at any approved educational institution.
The amount of scholarship money available is based on Development Council and Auxiliary funds and the financial needs of the applicant.
Eligible are those with academic achievement and high standings and who are currently enrolled in or accepted into a healthcare program.
The Community Healthcare Foundation would like students who are currently accepted into an accredited health-profession program to know about the Community Hospital-Fairfax scholarship/loan opportunity funded by the Foundation.
This scholarship/loan is available to students in the Community Hospital-Fairfax service area (Atchison, Holt and western Nodaway counties). The foundation welcomes anyone wishing to serve Community Hospital-Fairfax for 4 years after earning his or her certification as a healthcare professional. During that 4 years, the recipient will repay the Foundation fifty percent of the loan through payroll reimbursements. The money awarded to the student will assist with tuition and book fees.
Applications for all scholarships are available at Community Hospital-Fairfax or at www.FairfaxMed.com. Applications for the Genie Perry Scholarship are also available at the North Central Missouri Maryville campus nursing office. For more information, contact the Development Office at extension 317.
