SARATOGA SPRINGS – The Saratoga Hospital Volunteer Guild is offering scholarships to high school seniors in the greater Saratoga County area interested in pursuing healthcare careers.
Graduates may be exploring a broad range of medical careers: pre-med, nursing, bio-medical research, pharmacology, medical imaging, physical therapy, respiratory therapy, physician’s assistant, mental health and health care management. This year, the guild is offering five $1,500 scholarships.
Eligible students must be entering college in September 2017, have at least a 2.5 grade point average and a documented record of community service. The application deadline is Friday, March 31. Scholarship recipients will be honored at the Saratoga Hospital Volunteer Guild’s annual recognition dinner Thursday, May 11.

The Saratoga Hospital Volunteer Guild was founded in 1948 by 14 women whose intent was to establish a service organization to assist with projects that would “help the Hospital in the community.” The guild currently includes more than 300 volunteers who donate more than 50,000 hours of service per year. The guild has been offering these scholarships since 1990.
