Stanstead Journal - - NEWS BRIEFS -

Arear­es­i­dents are in­vited to ap­ply for North Coun­try Hos­pi­tal Health Care Ca­reer Schol­ar­ships for the 2011-2012 school year. The dead­line for ap­pli­ca­tions is ap­proach­ing. Any area res­i­dent seek­ing a health care ca­reer, in­clud­ing grad­u­at­ing high school se­niors and older, non-tra­di­tional stu­dents, is el­i­gi­ble to ap­ply. Com­pleted ap­pli­ca­tions, in­clud­ing tran­scripts, must be re­ceived by the hos­pi­tal by May 10, 2011.

The schol­ar­ships are based on scholas­tic abil­ity, achieve­ment, ap­ti­tude, mo­ti­va­tion, and fi­nan­cial need. Ap­pli­cant must live in the North Coun­try Hos­pi­tal ser­vice area. Schol­ar­ships are awarded for four years, as long as the re­cip­i­ent main­tains at least a 2.5 grade point av­er­age.

This is the 23rd year the Board of Trustees of North Coun­try Hos­pi­tal has ap­pro­pri- ated funds to en­cour­age area stu­dents to pur­sue ca­reers in the health care field. Funds raised by the An­nual North Coun­try Hos­pi­tal Ben­e­fit Golf Tour­na­ment held each year pro­vides for ad­di­tional schol­ar­ships.

Ad­di­tional schol­ar­ships avail­able are the Joyce Se­lan Nurs­ing Schol­ar­ship and the Toni Smith Re­s­pi­ra­tory Care schol­ar­ship, and the Caryl B. Custer Nurs­ing Schol­ar­ship. Your ap­pli­ca­tion will au­to­mat­i­cally be sub­mit­ted for these if ap­pro­pri­ate.

Ap­pli­ca­tions are avail­able on the hos­pi­tal web­site www.north­coun­try­hos­pi­tal.org.
