In 2019, Davis County Hospital & Clinics began offering the Health Services Education Scholarship, that awards at least two $500 scholarships to two or more applicants annually.  The applicants are preferred to reside in Davis County but those living outside of Davis County will be considered as well. This scholarship is designed to assist individuals pursuing a career in a healthcare related field, which could include Nursing, Radiology, Laboratory, Respiratory Therapy, Physical Therapy, Occupational Therapy, Speech Therapy, Pharmacy, Medicine, Health Information Management etc.

A broad-based criterion is used in the selection process. The principle criterion is a demonstrated commitment to post-secondary education in a healthcare related field. An applicants’ academic record, communication skills, community involvement, and instructor recommendations are also considered.

Anyone who feels they meet the criteria for eligibility are encouraged to submit an application. A copy of the application may be obtained from the Davis County Hospital & Clinics Human Resources Department or online at the link below.  Applications must be received or postmarked no later than March 31st, 2023 for the application and supporting materials to be considered by the committee. From all scholarships received, the scholarship committee will select the number of scholarships given. Eligible individuals are encouraged to apply each year.

The scholarship application for 2023 is now available: click HERE to download.
