St. Clement Community Foundation provides a one-time, $1,500 scholarship to students pursuing a degree in the health care field. The scholarship awards will be made to students that are residents of the service area (see About Us/Service Area tab) of the former St. Clement Hospital and Maria Care facilities. Evidence of residency and enrollment (letter of acceptance does not count) for summer or fall classes in the year of application must be provided before a scholarship award payment will be issued. At least one of the scholarships will be awarded to a current employee, or the spouse or dependent, of Red Bud Regional Hospital or Red Bud Regional Care Rehabilitation and Senior Living. In addition, at least one of the scholarships will be awarded to a traditional student (entering college directly from high school, including the years to complete the degree), one to a non-traditional student (entering college some years after high school), and one random selection. In addition, one $500 scholarship will be awarded recognizing community service, given in honor of past board members.
This scholarship is intended to support deserving students in their academic endeavors and the development of quality health care professionals in this region. The Foundation encourages scholarship recipients, upon completion of their program of study, to seek employment in the health care field in this geographic area in keeping with the mission of this foundation to ensure the availability and enhancement of health care services to residents of our area. All requests for funding will be reviewed by the SCCF Grants and Scholarships Committee and final decisions will be made by the SCCF Board of Directors.
Note: Evidence of residency and enrollment for summer or fall classes in the year of application must be provided before a scholarship award payment will be issued.
