The Ascension Borgess Allegan Foundation announces the availability of scholarships for high school seniors pursuing a career in healthcare. Up to five awards may be given out in May to area seniors.
Applicants must be able to demonstrate a commitment to a career in healthcare and be in good standing at a high school in Ascension Borgess Allegan Hospital’s primary or secondary service areas (Allegan, Bangor, Bloomingdale, Fennville, Gobles, Hamilton, Martin, Otsego, Plainwell, Hopkins and Wayland).
“Investing in both our current and future healthcare teams is an essential part of our Foundation’s work on behalf of the communities we serve,” said Brent L. Larson, executive director of the Ascension Borgess Allegan Foundation. “These scholarship awards are available because of donations made by community members to help ensure that welltrained, dedicated health care professionals are available now and for future generations.”
Application forms and information are available on the foundation’s website aghfoundation.org. Forms are also available from high school counselors or by calling the AGH Foundation at (269) 686-4234. To be considered, applications must be received by the Foundation office on or before Friday, April 20, 2012.
The Ascension Borgess Allegan Foundation Scholarship Fund is made up of the Schuyler Mellen Education Endowment Fund, Marie Hall Nursing Scholarship Fund and general fund maintained by the Ascension Borgess Allegan Foundation.
The Ascension Borgess Allegan Foundation invites and accepts financial gifts to help further the mission of Ascension Borgess Allegan Hospital, and to support selected health-related projects in the community. It is a resource for people interested in “investing in the health of our community.” In addition to scholarship programs, the Foundation supports new health care programs and facilities, helps purchase clinical equipment, and sponsors wellness initiatives.
