As the health care industry nationwide hopes to resolve ongoing staffing shortages in several areas, Adena Health System is taking the action to turn that hope into reality. Adena awards scholarships to students through its Hope for Our Future initiative to pursue courses of study within fields associated with health care that may one day lead some of the recipients home to care for the communities served by the health system.
Scholarships are available to applicants considering a career in health care, either directly involved with patient care on the clinical side or in a number of fields that support operation of a health system, such as accounting, information technology, human resources, legal, marketing and communications and business development, among others. They are awarded on a competitive basis after applications are reviewed by an Adena scholarship committee. Applicants must have a 3.3 GPA and either a high school diploma or a GED score of 550.
