Undergraduate Health Care Scholarship
Considering the importance and complexities of high-quality health care in today’s society, it is critical for bright, talented people to be encouraged to pursue professions in the field. With that in mind, the NHA Research and Educational Foundation offers the Undergraduate Health Care Career Scholarship Program, designed for students interested in a career in health care.
These scholarships support future leaders in their efforts to earn a high-quality education. This scholarship is available to students who are employed by an NHA member hospital and who are enrolled in an accredited program leading to a bachelor’s degree, certification or registration in a health care career. Approved programs include, but are not limited to, nursing, radiological technology, clinical medical technology, physical therapy, etc.
Ten recipients are selected to receive $1,500 for the academic year. Applicants must be employed by a member hospital of the Nebraska Hospital Association for at least 1 year.
This scholarship is awarded to students pursuing a graduate degree in health care at an accredited college or university or an accredited institution offering online degree programs. The purpose of the scholarship is to assist with tuition and academic expenses in the form of an award of $3,000 for an academic year for eight individuals. Applicants pursuing a graduate degree in health care administration are preferred, but many programs are still eligible.
These new scholarships assist students who are working toward a career to improve the health and well-being of Nebraska’s communities. Aureus Medical Group and FocusOne Solutions are dedicated to helping outstanding health care professionals take the next step forward in their health care career.
