Health Professions Scholarship Programs
The Memorial Health Professions Scholarships (Wiley, Hunt, Blackburn, and Obert) and the Thomas E. Bailey Memorial Scholarship are great opportunities for students and residents of Bedford County.
Through the generous donations of the late Dr. Bert and Lucille Wiley, as well as Thomas E. Bailey, the Memorial Hospital of Bedford County (MHBC) Foundation has funds to provide scholarships for students entering health profession studies.
The Education Committee of the MHBC Foundation has been challenged to select applicants that have a justified need, ability
to excel in and complete a health professions program, and dedication to serve the profession, patients, and co-workers.
A minimum of one of each scholarship will be awarded each year.
Any Bedford County resident attending or planning to attend an accredited educational institution in pursuit of a career in the field of health care is encouraged to apply. Hospital employees are eligible to apply for the scholarship in addition to tuition reimbursement. If you have questions about the scholarship program, contact the scholarship coordinator, Sandy Boyd, at 814-623-3773 or by email.
This year, all scholarship applications will be completed electronically online. The Community Foundation of the Alleghenies administers the monies for the MHBC Foundation, and this year they have made the applications accessible electronically on the The Community Foundation for the Alleghenies website.
All scholarship applicants must submit electronically filed applications this year. No hard copies will be accepted at UPMC Bedford. Deadline to submit is March 31, 2018.
