Hancock Health Foundation Healthcare and Wellness Scholarship

Each year, Hancock Health Foundation awards at least one $2,000 scholarship to support local students and encourage entry into healthcare and wellness professions.

Applicants must be residents of Hancock Health’s primary service area* or employed in a healthcare or wellness capacity in Hancock County. Applicants must be post-secondary school students currently enrolled in a healthcare or wellness program. Examples of eligible fields of study may include, but are not limited to, athletic training, physical therapy, nutrition, pharmacy, social work, and general medicine. Nursing students are excluded from applying for this scholarship, as other nursing scholarships are available through the Foundation. Students must be enrolled in an associates, bachelor’s, master’s, or professional degree program.

Selection criteria for this scholarship include academic achievement, community or extracurricular involvement, and demonstration of interest and/or experience in healthcare or wellness activities. Prior recipients of this scholarship may apply again.

The scholarship selection committee may request personal interviews with selected applicants.
