The MED Foundation Scholarship Program was created to support the selection of careers in the healthcare profession by offering scholarships to graduating seniors from each of the six Mercer County schools interested in improving the health of the citizens in Mercer County and the surrounding area.
The MED Foundation's Board of Directors have made a commitment to provide at least one scholarship to a graduate from each of the schools in Mercer County who are pursuing an education in healthcare. All scholarship applicants must live in Mercer County or attend high school in Mercer County. Scholarships will be awarded based upon evaluation and assessments to meet future healthcare needs.
The Scholarship Program is funded by the Esmonde/Homan Golf Outing held annually on the second Friday in June. Due to the success of the Golf Outing in recent years, the MED Foundation has been able to provide additional scholarships to even more local students.
In 2019, 17 scholarships were awarded for a total of $16,000 Since the inception of the program, 260 scholarships have been awarded totaling $275,950.00.
The 2020 applications will be available in August and due by February 28, 2020.
