Scholarships offered

Diana Baxter, Linda Gilson and Debra Gray of the Warren General Hospital Auxiliary Scholarship Committee are beginning to preview scholarship requests for 2014. The auxiliary has allotted $20,000 for healthcare scholarships this year. The money can be used for tuition, room, board and/or books. To help more area students, the auxiliary scholarships have been changed to annual scholarships, not renewable. Applicants denied scholarships in a previous year are encouraged to reapply if their status now fits the required criteria. To receive an application, interested applicants should submit a typewritten introductory letter that includes the following information: their interest in the health care field; their financial need; their experience, if any, in the health care field; any other volunteer experience or employment; and when and where they plan to take their training. This information must be mailed to the Warren General Hospital Auxiliary president, postmarked on or before March 7. No letters will be considered after the deadline. No hand delivered letters will be accepted.
