The Pratt Regional Medical Center Volunteers will consider scholarship(s) to persons who plan to enter health care field. Some examples of health care fields are nursing, dentistry, respiratory therapy, physical therapy, x-ray technology, pharmacy, laboratory technology or any other fields deemed appropriate by the Scholarship Committee.
The scholarships total $1,000 per year or $500 per semester and will be given in two installments which are made payable to the accredited college of the applicants choice when payment is due for the fall and spring semesters.
The second installment will be given when the recipient furnishes a transcript of the first semesters grades and continues in a health related field of study. Each scholarship recipient who wishes to be reconsidered for another scholarship must reapply annually. The Volunteers Scholarship Committee will interview applicants, if necessary, to determine eligibility based on:
- Financial need of the individual

Recommendations will be made by the Scholarship Committee to the Board of Directors for final approval.
