The Bernard F. and Melissa Anne Bailey Family Fund is an endowment created for the purpose of funding student health-care scholarships. The fund was created through a $3.3 million bequest from Bernard F. Bailey to MyMichigan Medical Center Midland. The income earned from the fund will be used to help mid-Michigan area individuals who are accepted into accredited health career programs and are interested in pursuing undergraduate, graduate or professional schooling.
The fund, initiated through a $3.3 million bequest left by Bernard Bailey to MyMichigan, was established to further the goals of students pursuing clinical health care careers from an accredited college or university. Under the stewardship of the MyMichigan Health Foundation, scholarships are awarded to students in health care fields on the basis of merit and established criteria as determined by an overseer committee. Interested applicants must be a resident or have immediate family living in mid-Michigan counties. Applications run from December until the deadline.
