SCHOLARSHIP OPPORTUNITIES FOR HIGH SCHOOL SENIORS AND NURSING STUDENTS ARE ANNOUNCED



Community groups are also eligible for grant opportunities

The Pocono Health Foundation announces the offering of various healthcare-related scholarships. The scholarships are awarded to students who exemplify academic excellence, compassion, and a desire for improving the quality of life in our community. These scholarships are designated for nursing students entering their final year of an accredited nursing program.

• R. Dale Hughes established the first scholarship in 1991, and it was named the R. Dale Hughes Nursing Scholarship Endowment.

• The Cramer Family established The Jennie Cramer Nursing Scholarship in 1992 to help recruit outstanding nursing students to Pocono Medical Center.

• The final nursing scholarship is The Robert A. Gordon Memorial Nursing Scholarship, created by the Pocono Medical Center Board of Directors in 1991 in recognition of Mr. Gordon’s outstanding service as a Board member.

In addition to the nursing scholarships, there is also a scholarship designed for future healthcare professionals who are currently Monroe County High School seniors accepted in a college or university program. This scholarship is made possible through the Dr. Elmo Lilli Memorial Healthcare Scholarship. Dr. Lilli began serving as a family and geriatric physician in 1959 and also served as Chief of the Medical Staff at Pocono Medical Center from 1978 to 1980.

In conjunction with these four scholarships, the Pocono Health Foundation invites community organizations to apply for a grant through the Dr. Alberta Finch Children’s Health Endowment or the Dr. Claus G. Jordan Endowment Fund. Anyone interested in learning more about these grant and scholarship opportunities is encouraged to visit the Pocono Health Foundation website at www.poconohealthfoundation.org. The applications for all of the scholarships will be accepted through March 31, 2014.
