Community Hospital-Fairfax Auxiliary invites the public to apply for their Healthcare Educational Scholarship Program. This program provides assistance with healthcare education at any approved educational institution.
The following information explains the guidelines of the healthcare education scholarship program and how to apply. Students currently accepted for admission to an approved educational institution in a healthcare program are eligible. Students may be newly accepted or currently enrolled and taking classes for a higher degree or advanced training in a healthcare field.
Criteria for selection will include: prior academic achievement and honors; community service and other indications of service in healthcare; possible interest in pursuing a career with Community Hospital-Fairfax (not a necessity to be selected); two references, one educational and one personal (non-relative); and those who are in most need of assistance amongst candidates.
The amount of the scholarship will be awarded based on the amount the Auxiliary has to offer and the applicant’s financial needs. These scholarships may be renewed in subsequent years of schooling if the selection committee feels the recipient has met criteria. Scholarship monies awarded will be sent directly to the educational institution’s financial aid office; or can be used for travel stipends secured by the Auxiliary with a gift certificate from an area station; or used as child care expenses sent directly to a child care facility.
Applications are available at the Community Hospital-Fairfax Auxiliary Gift Shop, in Office of Administration, or online at Community Hospital-Fairfax’s website (www.fairfaxmed.com). The completed application must be returned to that office by June 30, 2016.
