ATKINSON — Since 1988 West Holt Medical Services Foundation has awarded over $50,000 to 234 local students. The purpose of the scholarship awards are to provide financial assistance and educational opportunities to students who are pursuing a course of study in the medical or allied-health field and, further, encourage students to return to West Holt Medical Services for employment upon completion of their studies.

The Foundation is currently accepting and reviewing scholarship applications for our fall awards. Applications submitted will be reviewed by members of the Foundation’s Scholarship Committee. “Our Foundation is committed to giving back to our community through helping students pursue their educational dreams,” expressed Foundation Executive Director Jessica Prussa.

Two scholarships will be awarded, each in the amount of $500. Students of any age currently enrolled or accepted for enrollment in a school or program which provides a course of study leading to a degree or a certificate in the areas of study in the medical or allied health field are invited to apply.  Primary consideration will be given to individuals who express interest in obtaining employment in their chosen medical field at West Holt Medical Services.

Applications are available here. All applications must be received by November 15 to be considered for the fall awards. For more information contact Jessica Prussa at (402) 925-1956.
