Applicants sought for HCHC scholarship program

Oct 12, 2017

Applications are currently being accepted for a scholarship/loan program through Henry County Health Center (HCHC) and the Friends of Henry County Health Center.

The purpose of the scholarship is to encourage education and future employment in a health care field at HCHC. Applicants must be residents of Henry County, HCHC associates, or be a family member of an HCHC associate.

The program is designated as a scholarship/loan because the recipient will be required to work at HCHC pending completion of course work, certification and availability of employment. The scholarship/loan amount will be forgiven over a specified period of employment.

Applications are available from HCHC, high schools located in Henry County, Iowa Wesleyan College, Southeastern Community College, Indian Hills Community College or Kirkwood Community College. To print the application, go to and click on the link “Friends of HCHC Scholarship Application.”

Applicants may enroll in a program of their choice and at the college of their choice; however, the scholarship committee reserves the right to review the program. Funds may be used to pay for tuition, books and other educational expenses.

Completed applications are due by Monday, Nov. 27, and may be turned into the HCHC Public Information Department, 407 S. White Street.

HCHC and the Friends of HCHC initiated the scholarship/loan program in 1979 to offer financial assistance to students enrolled in a health care field of study. Numerous scholarships have been awarded to area students in hospital service areas such as nursing, emergency care, laboratory, imaging (radiology), medical records and pharmacy. Friends of Henry County Health Center sponsor an annual fall soup supper on the first Friday in November to help fund the scholarship.

For more scholarship information, call 319-385-6124.
