Our goal is to provide today’s youth opportunities for continued success as tomorrow’s healthcare professionals.
The selected winners have achieved a 3.0 GPA (on a 4.0 scale) or higher, are PHP members or have attended high school in the PHP service area, and have been accepted to an post-secondary college, university, or technical school. These winners also responded to a scholarship essay topic and were selected among their peers as the top candidates.
Scoring was based on the quality of the application and essay, including, but not limited to: Content, grammar, punctuation, spelling, research documentation and creativity. Also considered was community service including the length of commitment, quality of teamwork and leadership responsibilities in the community, and as well as academic studies, activities, awards, and honors.
