Foundation for Community Care Accepting Scholarship Applications

 


Applications are now available for two scholarship programs offered by the Foundation for Community Care for new and continuing college students in the 2017-2018 academic year.

The first program offered by the Foundation board of directors is the annual Healthcare Scholarship program. Richland County and surrounding area residents pursuing an education in a healthcare field who intend to live and work in the area are encouraged to apply for funding. “We want to encourage local individuals to pursue careers in healthcare and stay here or return here to work after they graduate,” Foundation Board Member & Scholarship Committee Chair, Kristan Haugen said. Applicants must have completed one year at a post-secondary university or college.

The second program is a local education focused scholarship opportunity. The Jessica Vannatta Memorial Scholarship was created by her father Greg Vannatta. The scholarship is awarded to a resident in Richland County and the surrounding area who is pursuing a degree in education at a college or university. Both high school and college students are eligible to apply.

“The link to education and better health is stronger than you think,” Foundation Executive Director, Gina Dennis said. “A strong education is a great first step to ensuring a high quality of life for this generation and the next. Through both the Healthcare Scholarship, and Jessica Vannatta Memorial Scholarship we can help to ensure a healthy future for the residents of Richland County.”

Qualified applicants can apply by contacting the Foundation for Community Care at 406-488-2273. Applications, requirements and guidelines are available at the Foundation office or on their website at http://www.foundationforcommunitycare.org. Applications must be received by the Foundation by April 28, 2017 to be considered.
