White Co. Medical Foundation Scholarship Applications Available

The White County Medical Foundation and White County Medical Center Auxiliary have announced that applications are now available for the Foundation’s 2014 Scholarship Program. The Foundation and Auxiliary will award 15 scholarships in the amount of $1,000 to graduating high school seniors who are residents of White County, including WCMC associates and children of associates.

The Foundation and Auxiliary Scholarship Program is tailored for students going in to healthcare-related fields of study, including computer applications, accounting or other business careers. The Foundation scholarships were established as a memorial for a loved one, or in memory or in honor of people who made great contributions to medicine in White County.

“The WCMC Auxiliary is delighted to help provide opportunities for promising students to pursue a career in medical services,” said Auxiliary President Kathy Gammill. “We believe it is important to invest in our young people, in hopes they will bring their newfound knowledge back to our community upon graduation from college.”

In addition to filling out a formal application, applicants are required to submit a current high school transcript, ACT scores, essay questions, one letter of recommendation from an academic source and two letters of recommendation from other references. Complete applications are due to the White County Medical Foundation Office at 1200 S. Main St., Searcy, AR 72143; or the WCMC Marketing Department at 3214 E.
