Daviess Community Hospital Foundation Awarding Health Career Scholarships

(UNDATED) – The Daviess Community Hospital Foundation has announced they are awarding Health Career Scholarships to residents of Daviess, Martin, and Pike counties or dependents of DCH employees from these areas.

Students who are pursuing a degree in the field of health care from an accredited educational institution of higher learning are eligible to apply.

Only one application is required to be eligible for both scholarship programs if the individual is pursuing a nursing degree.

  • The Health Careers Scholarship Program: Up to $1,500 may be awarded for each scholarship recipient selected.
  • The Helen Arthur Memorial Scholarship Award: A $500 scholarship award for a student pursuing a nursing degree.

The Helen Arthur Memorial Scholarship Award honors Helen Arthur, a local resident who was unable to fulfill her desire to become a nurse after contracting tuberculosis. The scholarship recognizes the women of Omega Alpha Chi, a local homemakers group, who in 1954 established and named a Helen Arthur Memorial Educational Loan Fund for students pursuing medical careers. In 2006, the group gifted the balance of the fund to the DCH Foundation to support the scholarship program.

Scholarship Application Deadline is March 5, 2021
