Scholarship Program

2017 Scholarship Application will be posted here in early 2017.

The CMH Foundation Healthcare Scholarship Program was established to provide scholarships to assist students pursuing a healthcare career. The program supports students who are preparing for careers in the following areas: nursing, respiratory care, radiology, laboratory services, physical, occupational, or speech therapy, pre-med, medical assisting, pharmacy, and health information management. From 2001-2012, the Foundation has provided more than $50,000 in scholarship funding for students pursuing careers in the health care industry.

There are three $1,000 scholarships available.  These three scholarships are named for individuals whose contributions to Community Memorial Hospital were substantial.  These amazing individuals are:

  • Rachel Hofmeister
  • Betty Altman
  • Stevie Boon
  • The Kennerk Family Foundation

One scholarship is reserved for a high school senior who resides in Mark, Milford or Hicksville Township.  One is reserved for a high school senior in our neighboring Ohio communities. One is reserved for a student who is currently attending college.

Below are the general guidelines for the scholarship program. These guidelines are reviewed annually, and may be changed at the discretion of the Foundation board of directors. Please review the Scholarship Brochure and Application for the most current guidelines.
