Volunteen Assisting

Owensboro Health is now accepting applications for its Volunteer Auxiliary Scholarships. Five scholarships of $2,000 each are available to past teen volunteers, children of team members, or team members not currently receiving tuition reimbursement who want to attend a college or university to pursue a career in healthcare.

The scholarship recipients will receive two payments in increments of $1,000 —one to be paid in August 2024 and the other in January 2025. The awarded scholarships can be used for expenses such as tuition, course fees and books.

The deadline to apply for the scholarship is 4 p.m. on April 28, 2024. Applicants will be notified of the committee's decision by June 1.
