Grand River Health will once again be offering area students a chance at one of eight $1000 scholarships to those who are interested in one of the many health care related fields (nursing, radiology, pathology, pre-med, physical therapy etc.). Any person who lives in Grand River Hospital District or is or was a student in one of the three in-district high schools (Rifle, Grand Valley or Coal Ridge), and who wishes to pursue a career in the medical field may apply. You must be planning to attend a college, university or technical school. Applicants may include graduating high school seniors, individuals who have previously graduated high school, college students, and Grand River Health employees. Awards will be given only to individuals who have not previously received a scholarship from the Grand River Health.
The Grand River Volunteer Association, who is passionate about education of the area’s youth, will be offering two additional $2,000 scholarships for students who are pursuing a medical career. For these scholarships, a student must meet the above criteria, and have put in 50 hours or more of volunteering at Grand River Health. Scholarship applications are available at Grand River Health customer service desks, all in-district high schools or you may download an application, then return it to Grand River Health C/O Kaaren Peck, Director volunteer services.
