Foundation accepting scholarship applications

Schneck Foundation’s scholarship committee recently announced scholarship applications for allied health care fields are available.

Candidates interested in pursuing a course of study in a technical/professional allied health career may apply.

Acceptance for enrollment at a school and program of study in a technical/professional field is required for the scholarship to be officially awarded.

The foundation’s focus is on those individuals interested in health care fields. Since there are no other scholarships available specifically for this group, the foundation devotes its efforts to the allied health areas, including, but not limited to, clinical support areas such as speech therapy, respiratory therapy, lab technology, pharmacy, physical therapy and radiological technology.

This scholarship program was started in 1992 and since that time has awarded more than $385,300 in scholarships.

An application may be obtained online at schneckfoundation.org or schneckmed.org or from the Schneck Medical Center Foundation/Development Office in Suite 125 of the Jackson Medical Building in Seymour. Applications also will be available from counselors at local high schools.

Applications must be returned to the foundation/development office no later than March 15 to be eligible for consideration.
