Applications for health care scholarships available

Applications to the Bernard F. and Melissa Anne Bailey Family Fund Health Care Scholarship pro­gram at MidMichigan Health are now available.

Applications for scholarships for the 2018-19 school year are avail­able at www.midmichigan.org/ bailey. Applications and support documentation will only be accepted electronically. The deadline for the 2018-19 school year is March 1, 2018.

The fund, initiated through a $3.3 million bequest left by Bernard Bai­ley to MidMichigan, was established to further the goals of students pur­suing clinical health care careers from an accredited college or uni­versity. Under the stewardship of the MidMichigan Health Foundation, scholarships are awarded to students in health care fields on the basis of merit and established criteria as de­termined by an overseer commit­tee. Interested applicants must be a resident or have immediate family living in any of the following mid- Michigan counties: Alcona, Alpena, Bay, Clare, Gladwin, Gratiot, Isa­bella,

Midland, Montcalm, Ogemaw, Roscommon and Saginaw.

More than $199,000 was award­ed to 130 students pursuing health care careers for the 2017-18 school year. More than $2 million in total has been granted by the Bailey Fam­ily Fund to assist area students since it began offering health care scholar­ships in 2005.
