Community Hospital-Fairfax Auxiliary sponsors a healthcare educational scholarship program. This program provides assistance with healthcare education at any approved educational institution.
Students who are currently accepted for admission to an approved educational institution in a health care program are considered for this scholarship. Students may be newly accepted or currently enrolled and taking classes for a degree or higher degree or advanced training in a healthcare field.
Criteria for selection includes: prior academic achievement and honors; community services and other indications of services in healthcare; possible interest in pursuing career with Community Hospital-Fairfax (not mandatory); and two references: one educational and one personal (non-relative).
