Two Scholarship Programs available through the
Foundation for Community Care
The Foundation for Community Care board of directors offers 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.
A second local scholarship opportunity is now available as well. 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
Applications, requirements and guidelines will be available at the Foundation office and on the website starting March 1st, 2018.
