A career in health care can be rewarding and challenging. The career opportunities are many and varied: Medical Lab Technology, Nursing, Pharmacy, Physical Therapy,
Radiology, Respiratory Therapy, as well as the medical practice specialties, just to name a few.
The Greater Phoenixville Healthcare Scholarship has been providing college scholarships since 1995. Since then, over ninety scholarships have been awarded to high school graduates within the Phoenixville Hospital service area – all to students who are pursuing careers within the health care professions.
The Phoenixville Community Health Foundation has taken a lead role in administering this scholarship program. The Foundation partners with the Phoenixville Hospital, the Phoenixville Hospital Thrift Shop, the Phoenixville Hospital Auxiliary, and the Phoenixville Hospital Medical Staff to fund the scholarships.
Application packets have been sent to the Principals, Guidance offices and Science Departments of the high schools whose graduates are eligible to apply: Technical College High School Pickering Campus, Great Valley, Methacton, Owen J. Roberts, Perkiomen Valley, Phoenixville, Pottsgrove, Pope John Paul VI, Spring-Ford and the Western Center for Technical Studies.
The 2013 scholarship program will offer at least five separate scholarships.
The scholarships are all $2,000 a year for up to four years.
Lynn Pike Hartman, Vice President for Programs at the Phoenixville Community Health Foundation stated, “This scholarship program is in keeping with the Foundation’s
mission and strategic interests. We are pleased to be the administrative partner for the program again this year. I encourage the graduates of the Class of 2013 to consider a career in the health care field. For those who are
looking in that direction I also encourage you to apply for this scholarship opportunity.”
The application deadline is April 5, 2013.
