Calling all students: Valley Health is now accepting applications for our Minority Health Care Scholarship program! This scholarship is open to current Valley Health patients who register as members of a minority racial or ethnic group and are interested in pursuing a career in health care.
The Minority Health Care Scholarship will be awarded to one recipient, who will receive up to $5,000 to apply toward their post-secondary education or certification in medical/nursing, health sciences, and health administrative fields.
Cost can be a barrier for many of us when it comes to post-secondary studies and certifications. With this award, Valley Health can lessen a portion of the recipient’s financial burden. The Minority Health Care Scholarship may be applied toward tuition, course materials, equipment, and other educational expenses.
At Valley Health, we believe that every investment in our patients’ bright futures is an investment in our entire community. Through the Minority Health Care Scholarship program, we aim to support our current patients — and future health care providers and personnel — as they pursue their goals.
Applications must be received or postmarked by April 30, 2023. A committee will review all submissions over the following weeks, and the scholarship recipient will be announced.
