The Adena Health Foundation is now accepting applications for scholarships for the 2019-20 school year.
Since 2002, the foundation has awarded more than $804,000 in scholarships to students from Adena’s service region.
Students who apply must be working toward a degree in a health care field. Scholarships are available by field of study, which include: physical therapy, speech therapy, audiology, licensed physical/occupational therapy assistant, radiology technologist, nursing, medical technologist or medical laboratory technologist, medicine and pharmacy.
Current or past scholarship recipients must re-apply in order to be considered for the 2019-20 school year.
Applicants must have a high school GPA of at least 3.3 and diploma or a GED score of at least 550. They must also be a permanent resident of one of the counties in Adena’s service area which includes Adams, Athens, Fayette, Gallia, Highland, Hocking, Jackson, Pickaway, Pike, Ross, Scioto and Vinton. Applicants must provide proof of admission to their academic program of choice. Proof of college admission does not always constitute admission to a specific program. If your program admission is pending, mark “pending” on your application and provide proof as soon as possible.
