Scholarship applications now being accepted

Posted: Friday, April 24, 2020

Parkview Huntington Foundation is accepting applications for the Parkview Huntington Spirit of Service Scholarship. The scholarship was established in 2018 by a gift from the former Parkview Huntington Hospital (PHH) Guild. It continues that organization’s tradition of support for students pursuing post-secondary studies in the healthcare field.

Two $1,500 scholarships are available for the 2020-2021 academic year. To qualify, applicants must be enrolled, or plan to enroll, in a healthcare-related major or course of study at an accredited post-secondary educational institution. All information provided on applications will be confidential and used only by committee members for the purposes of review and selection of scholarship recipients.

Applications are reviewed by a selection committee composed of members of PHH's volunteer corps, the hospital’s leadership team, the Parkview Huntington Foundation board of directors and the broader community. The scholarship awards will be announced in June.

Karmen Koch, of Huntington, a pharmacy student at Butler University, and Sheena Hicks, of Waterloo, a bachelor’s degree candidate in occupational therapy at Huntington University, were awarded Spirit of Service scholarships for the 2019-2020 school year.

Continuing funding for the scholarship comes from proceeds of PHH gift shop operations. Deadline for applications to be received is Friday, May 22, 2020. Applications are available online at www.parkview.com/SpiritScholarship.

Completed applications may be emailed to mike.perkins@parkview.com, or mailed to: Parkview Huntington Spirit of Service Scholarship, c/o Mike Perkins, Parkview Huntington Hospital, 2001 Stults Road, Huntington, IN 46750.
