TCMH Healthcare Foundation to award multiple scholarships

The Texas County Memorial Hospital Healthcare Foundation plans to award multiple educational scholarships for the fall 2022 academic year. The organization is currently accepting applications for the scholarships.
The TCMH Healthcare Foundation Educational Scholarship Program is designed to assist area students that are pursuing or planning to pursue education in a healthcare related field or students currently working in healthcare that are pursuing additional education for their current career.  
The Healthcare Foundation is in its fourteenth year of awarding scholarships in the fall and the spring, and the Foundation’s board of directors has awarded scholarships totaling $126,000 in that time. Students from towns across the TCMH service area have received the scholarships. 
“Providing educational scholarships is a primary pillar of the Healthcare Foundation,” Jeff Gettys, TCMH Healthcare Foundation President, stated. “The board of directors of the Foundation recognizes the need to assist area students in their educational endeavors with hopes that the student will return to or stay in the Texas County area to provide healthcare services to area residents after receiving additional education.”
The Healthcare Foundation hosts an annual golf tournament to raise money for the scholarship program, and plans are underway to host a tournament again on June 11.
Healthcare Services Group Charitable Foundation, the purchasing group that TCMH belongs to, provides matching funds for scholarships given by the TCMH Healthcare Foundation. Those funds are available annually to the Healthcare Foundation and enable the Healthcare Foundation to give out additional scholarships to area students.
In addition to the scholarships from the TCMH Healthcare Foundation, the Healthcare Foundation will also award the “Dr. Joe L. and Judith T. Spears Memorial Scholarship” and the “Dr. Eugene Charles Honeywell Memorial Scholarship”. Both are endowed funds that are awarded to a deserving student annually.
Eligible students for the scholarships must be accepted to or currently enrolled in an accredited university, college or post-secondary training program. Residents of the TCMH service area—all of Texas County and Mountain Grove—and students that are graduates of Texas County and Mountain Grove schools are eligible to apply. Applicants already pursuing a career in a healthcare organization, or applicants planning to pursue a career in a health field with direct patient care are eligible to apply for the scholarships.  
The scholarship application asks for information about the student and requires a short essay about the student’s career and educational goals. Applicants are also asked to list community involvement activities on their application, and they may be asked to meet with Foundation board members for a short personal interview.  
The deadline for the fall scholarship application is July 1, 2022.
