HURON — Huron Regional Medical Center (HRMC) Foundation scholarship deadline is fast approaching, according to Shawn Martin, HRMC Foundation executive director.
The scholarships are designed to give local scholars the chance to achieve their career goals while bringing much-needed medical expertise to the community. There are two categories which are available to area high school seniors and college students pursuing health careers.
The Healthy Huron Interest Scholarship focuses on supporting those who are interested in a career in the medical field but are either not pursuing a degree in a critical need field or are not ready to make a commitment to return to the Huron area after graduation. Actual scholarship award amounts will be determined by the scholarship committee.
The Healthy Huron Commitment Scholarship was established to turn the tide on one of the top challenges facing Huron and rural health care. This effort focuses on developing a steady supply of highly trained medical professionals by heavily supporting their education journey in exchange for them returning to Huron to care for our community. Commitment Scholarship amounts vary and are available to students who are willing to commit to return to Huron and work in a high-need area such as nursing, laboratory science, respiratory therapy or surgery technician.
“Ensuring that the Huron area continues to have high-quality, dedicated healthcare staff is a top priority for the supporters of the HRMC Foundation and we are dedicated to supporting that goal,” said Martin. “We’ve received a number of quality applications already, but I encourage others to consider the opportunity.”
Applications for both scholarships must be submitted electronically by 5 p.m. Wednesday. Visit www.hrmcfoundation.org or call 605-353-6315 or e-mail [email protected]
