Each spring, the Foundation awards scholarships to area students who are currently enrolled, or beginning their education, in a health related career field. Applicants must be studying one of the following on a full-time basis: Medicine, Nursing, Laboratory/Research, Radiology, Physical Therapy, Speech Therapy, Surgical Technology, Dentistry, Occupational Therapy, Respiratory Therapy, Pharmacy, Medical Information or another Health Related Field. Awards may be used for tuition, books, and room and board expenses. Applicants are considered for all scholarships for which they are eligible, but are limited to one scholarship per school year. Recipients receive scholarship proceeds in two disbursements - half in the fall and half in the spring sessions. Each recipient must present a copy of his or her full-time class schedule and previous semester's grades before scholarship funds are released. Applicants must reside in Arkansas.
