Gundersen Moundview/Memorial Healthcare Foundation
Who may apply
Candidates may be graduating seniors of Adams-Friendship and Westfield school districts or community members in Adams and Marquette Counties returning to school for healthcare-related training.
A scholarship of up to $1,000 will be awarded to up to five recipients pursuing healthcare-related courses of study.
The scholarship will be paid in one sum, distributed mid-summer after a first successful year of school which consists of having a 3.0 (measured on a standard of 4.0 grade scale) or B average. Recipients may apply for the Gundersen Moundview Healthcare Scholarship up to two times but must continue to maintain a 3.0 (measured on a standard of 4.0 grade scale) or B average to be eligible. The scholarship funds will be paid directly to the scholarship recipient, not to the post-secondary institution.
At the conclusion of the full year of study, the recipient will report by correspondence to the scholarship committee of their status and include an official transcript. All information submitted will remain confidential.
The scholarship committee will award the monies on the basis of the following:
- Scholastic ability
- Financial need
- Reference recommendation
The scholarship committee will be a team of Moundview Memorial Healthcare Foundation board members, Gundersen Moundview Hospital and Clinics staff and community members.
