Last Updated on January 27, 2016 by cassnetwork

Logansport Memorial Hospital is pleased to offer local high school students the opportunity to receive scholarships for higher education through two of its fundraising extensions – the Logansport Memorial Hospital Foundation and the Volunteer Auxiliary.

Logansport Memorial Hospital Foundation scholarship applications are now available in the guidance office of any Cass County high school. Completed applications must be received by the Foundation no later than Friday, April 1, 2016. The scholarship is only available for graduating seniors with career goals in the field of healthcare.

Scholarship applications for the Volunteer Auxiliary are now available in the guidance office at Cass County high schools as well. Completed applications must be received by the Volunteer Auxiliary no later than Monday, April 4, 2016 to be considered by the committee. The scholarship offered by the Volunteer Auxiliary is for any high school senior of an employee at Logansport Memorial Hospital. The recipient could also be a student who works or volunteers at the hospital.

For both scholarships, applications received must be filled out completely by the candidate. The signature of a
guidance counselor or faculty advisor is required. Each completed application must include a recent high school transcript and a copy of the applicant’s letter of acceptance to the university or college of his or her choice. Applications received without a transcript or letter of acceptance will automatically be disqualified. Any incomplete applications will also be disqualified.

For the Foundation scholarship, candidates are also required to submit three letters of reference from individuals, other than parents or relatives, who have known the student for at least four years. At least one reference letter must be from a source outside of school or school-related activities.

For the Volunteer Auxiliary scholarship, candidates must provide contact information for three character references who are individuals other than parents or relatives that have known the applicant for at least five years.

On behalf of Logansport Memorial Hospital, the Foundation and the Volunteer Auxiliary consider it a great honor to present community education scholarships to outstanding Cass County students. It is our hope that upon completion of their education, these students will return to our rural community and enjoy successful careers.
