Witham awards medical education loans

0

Each year, Witham Health Services Foundation awards medical education loans to applicants who are planning to enter or are currently enrolled in college and plan to become a medical professional.

The loans are available to Boone County residents and Witham employees. They are renewable for up to four years. Upon degree completion, applicants must agree to work at Witham Health Services until the loan is repaid in full via hours worked. Recipients may also choose to repay the loan monetarily, with interest.

Since its inception in 1988, the loan program has provided more than $300,000 in educational loans to local students and employees. Applicants must be legal residents of Boone County and be enrolled in a full-time, fully accredited program. Selection of loan recipients is not based on financial needs. First priority is given to applicants who pursue educational programs that directly benefit Witham Health Services.

The loans are intended to assist with tuition, books and other related expenses and are limited to four years of full-time study or less.

Through fund development, ambassadorship and education, Witham Health Services Foundation aims to assist the hospital in maintaining its financial growth.
