The Foundation for Marshall Medical Centers believes healthcare professionals are the cornerstone of an effective healthcare organization. It is this very belief which led the Foundation for Marshall Medical Centers to award over $15,000 in scholarships last year to graduating Marshall County seniors planning to pursue a career in the healthcare field. Because of the community’s generous support, the Foundation board of directors is thrilled to have the chance to offer more scholarship opportunities in the spring of 2015.

Area high school and home-schooled seniors interested in a healthcare curriculum are invited to apply for scholarships to be awarded in May of this year. The scholarships are provided through the Physicians’ Scholarship Program, which was created by the Foundation’s board of directors made up of area business leaders, health care providers and other Marshall County residents who are interested in playing a role in the training of quality health care professionals.

“Funding for the scholarship program is made possible by more than 120 physicians affiliated with our health system and individual contributions from our community,” said Kim Harris, youth programs coordinator for the Foundation. “It is our hope that they return to Marshall County to put their degrees to work.”

Students interested in applying may do so by contacting their school’s guidance counselor. Applications and guidelines are also available online at The deadline to submit applications is March 13, 2015.
