Applications for scholarships offered by Greene County Medical Center and its Auxiliary are now being accepted with a deadline of March 18, 2016.

The medical center offers a Healthcare Scholarship of up to $1,000 per year for up to four years to persons in the medical center service area who are entering or are already attending college in a healthcare field.

In addition, the medical center’s Auxiliary offers six $500 scholarships to persons in the medical center service area who are entering or are already attending college in a healthcare field.  The Auxiliary scholarship requires a 15-minute interview, which will be scheduled wither on the morning of Saturday, April 9, or the afternoon of Wednesday, April 13.

The purpose of both scholarships is to lend financial aid to students in Greene County or the Greene County Medical Center service area to help obtain nursing education or education in a health-related field, and to assure an adequate supply of healthcare professionals to help meet the needs of the Greene County Medical Center.

Scholarship applications, as well as references and transcripts, are due by Friday, March 18, 2016.  Interview appointments can be set up immediately.
