The Saratoga Hospital Volunteer Guild will once again be offering scholarships to high school seniors in the greater Saratoga County area interested in pursuing careers in health care.
This scholarship program has existed since 1990 and continues to help local students pursue their dreams after high school. 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 of 2018, have a 2.5 GPA or higher, and a documented record of community service. Application deadline is April 2, 2018. Scholarship recipients will be honored at the Volunteer Guild’s Annual Recognition Dinner on May 10, 2018.
Requirements and applications are available through local high school guidance offices and online at www.saratogahospital.org/about
