Morgantown, W.Va. – Healthcare occupations are projected to grow 15% in the next decade, a faster pace than the average of all occupations, adding 2.4 million jobs.
Educating these new employees is expensive. The Mon Health Medical Center Foundation, in Morgantown, continues to make a difference for local students with a scholarship program to help them in their pursuit. The Foundation is offering a health career scholarship with the recipients receiving $1,000 per year for a maximum of four years.
The scholarship program is offered for students from Gilmer, Harrison, Lewis, Marion, Monongalia, Preston, Randolph, Taylor, Tucker, Upshur and Wetzel counties in West Virginia, and students from Fayette and Greene counties in Pennsylvania. The scholarship deadline is March 1, 2021.
Applications are available from high school counselors in those counties, or on the website at www.monhealth.com/main/scholarship-program . Non-traditional students may also apply. Please obtain application and instructions for complete list of requirements.
For questions, contact Joanna Wiley, Scholarship Coordinator, Mon Health Medical Center Foundation at 304-598-1243 or WileyJ@MonHealthSys.org.
