The two scholarships are provided by the Heritage Valley Beaver and Heritage Valley Sewickley Foundations to support Beaver County and northwest Allegheny County residents in their pursuit of a health care profession. The Foundations receive donations from Heritage Valley physicians and other individuals who share this vision to encourage academic achievement in the medical sciences. Applicants can be in their senior year of high school, high school graduates, or current post-secondary students (ex. nursing school, undergraduate university, medical school, etc.). Students must provide proof of matriculation or current enrollment in order to receive any scholarship monies.
Scholarship selection is based upon academic achievement, involvement in school and community activities, financial need, work and volunteer experience and plans for a career in a medical field. The application deadline is May 31, 2014.
