Buhl Regional Health Foundation has opened up the eligibility for healthcare scholarships to Trumbull County high school seniors, but the deadline to apply is March 19.

“These scholarships are available to graduating high school seniors who wish to further their education in a healthcare-related field,” said Jessica Koss, executive team assistant. “Qualified applicants may be pursuing a four-year degree, a diploma, or even a certification from an institute of higher education. Programs such as HopeCat’s (Hope Center for the Arts and Technology) EMT certification or LTI’s (Laurel Technical Institute) Medical Assistant training are considered qualifying pursuits.”

The scholarships are limited, one-time, non-renewable grants that are paid directly to the educational institution and applied only to the tuition of a student who is enrolled and in good standing, the foundation said.

To apply, the student will need their student I.D. number; grade-point average; two letters of reference from a high school teacher, guidance counselor or coach; current high school transcript; description of community involvement and leadership roles and description of any work history; and will need to write an online essay.

Applications only can be filed online at buhlregionalhealthfoundation.org/scholarships, or with the QR code on the flier.
