Spirit of Service applications being accepted

Posted: Friday, March 26, 2021

Parkview Huntington Foundation is accepting applications for the 2021 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.

Scholarships in the amount of $1,500 each are available for the 2021-2022 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 the 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.

Spirit of Service Scholarship recipients in 2020 were Rebecca Allen, of Mattawan, Michigan, an occupational therapy assistant student at Huntington University; Nan Hammel, of Huntington, a nursing student at Ivy Tech, Fort Wayne; Victoria Keiffer, of Andrews, a nursing student at Goshen College and Joshua Zahm, of Huntington, a nursing student at Indiana University-Fort Wayne.

Continuing funding for the scholarship comes from proceeds of the operation of the gift shop at PHH.

Deadline for applications to be received is Wednesday, April 21, 2021. Applications are available online at Questions may be directed to Mike Perkins, director, Parkview Huntington Foundation, at (260) 224-1417.
