DHM Aux­il­iary of­fers schol­ar­ships for med­i­cal stu­dents

Manteca Bulletin - - Local/ State - By GLENN KAHL

The prof­its from the lobby gift shop op­er­ated by the Doc­tors Hos­pi­tal of Man­teca Aux­il­iary vol­un­teers have gone to fund schol­ar­ships for se­cond year col­lege stu­dents pur­su­ing med­i­cal ca­reers since the open­ing of the fa­cil­ity in 1962.

Ap­pli­ca­tions for the next round of schol­ar­ships are avail­able again be­gin­ning Feb. 20. They can be picked up at the front counter at the hos­pi­tal, 1250 East North Street.

Ap­pli­cants are re­quired to be res­i­dents liv­ing within the bound­aries of the Man­teca Uni­fied School District that in­cludes the Lathrop com­mu­nity and that of French Camp and the We­ston Ranch area, ac­cord­ing to schol­ar­ship com­mit­tee chair­man Linda Chec­chi.

The schol­ar­ship hope­fuls must be reg­is­tered in classes at an ac­cred­ited com­mu­nity col­lege, or a four-year col­lege or uni­ver­sity. Their ap­pli­ca­tions will be re­viewed on grade point av­er­ages, vol­un­teer his­tory, com­mu­nity in­volve­ment honors, lead­er­ship ex­pe­ri­ence and fi­nan­cial need. In the past the awards for tu­ition have gone from a low of $800 to a high of $4,000.

The ap­pli­ca­tions must be re­turned to the hos­pi­tal voun­teers’ schol­ar­ship com­mit­tee at the front desk by mail or hand de­liv­ered no later than Mon­day, April 2. For more in­for­ma­tion con­tact com­mit­tee chair­man Linda Chec­chi at 209-665-7300 or co-chair Judy Smith at 209-665-4506.
