The Health Careers Scholarship program was created in 2001 to assist local students entering college or continuing their college matriculation with their end goal being a career in the health care field. The Health Careers Scholarship program has grown not only in number of scholarships offered, but the dollar amounts awarded and the number of recipients assisted.
