Thomas Hospital Auxiliary awards health career scholarships each spring to Baldwin County residents who are pursuing a degree in the healthcare field.
Scholarship applicants must be currently enrolled in a healthcare program at an accredited college or university. Any student who is a college junior pursing a bachelor’s degree or is in the last year of an associate’s degree program is also considered. In addition, graduate and medical students may be eligible for scholarships after they have completed their undergraduate studies and have been accepted to a health-related program.
Selection of the scholarship recipients is based on the applicant’s grades, financial need and community involvement.
Scholarship applications are available in the Thomas Hospital Auxiliary office in February and are due in May. The auxiliary announces the scholarship recipients in June.
Health career scholarships awarded by the Thomas Hospital Auxiliary are made possible through proceeds from the Tree of Lights, an annual Christmas fundraiser sponsored by the auxiliary, and monies made from the donations of used books to the Thomas Hospital Auxiliary. Used paperback and hardback books in good condition are resold in the Thomas Hospital Gift Shop and Thomas Medical Center Snack Shop.
For the 2011 scholarship, completed applications and letters of reference must be postmarked no later than May 9, 2011.
