The Unity Health Foundation and Unity Health – White County Medical Center Auxiliary have announced applications are now available for the 2017 Scholarship Program. Applications are open to students in White County who are pursuing careers in the medical field. Applicants must be a high school senior living in White County, a Unity Health associate, or the child of a Unity Health associate who works at Unity Health – White County Medical Center, Unity Health – Specialty Care, the Unity Health Foundation, Unity Health – Medical Clinic Heber Springs, Unity Health – Red River Family Medicine, or any of the Unity Health Clinics located in White County.
The Foundation scholarships were established as memorials for a loved one, or in memory or in honor of people who made great contributions to healthcare in White County.
"We think it's important for the Auxiliary to give back," said Auxiliary President June Tripp. "The purpose is to provide money to those who want to pursue careers in healthcare and our hope is that awareness is heightened about the need for students to enter healthcare related fields."
Fifteen $1,000 scholarships will be awarded to graduating seniors or associates going into healthcare-related fields of study, which might include computer applications, accounting, or other business careers.
