Applications for Bailey Family Fund Scholarships due March 1
MidMichigan Health is accepting applications from clinical health care career students online for the Bernard F. and Melissa Anne Bailey Family Fund Scholarship. The application deadline for the 2014-15 school year is Saturday, March 1, 2014.
The fund, initiated through a $3.3 million bequest left by Bernard Bailey to MidMichigan Medical Center-Midland, was established to further the goals of students pursuing clinical health care careers from an accredited college or university. Scholarship applicants must show acceptance into their academic program with a cumulative grade point average of 3.0 or higher and must be a resident or have immediate family living in any of the following counties: Bay, Clare, Gladwin, Gratiot, Isabella, Midland, Montcalm, Ogemaw, Roscommon and Saginaw.
More than $230,000 was awarded to 160 students pursuing health care careers from 34 communities for the 2013-14 school year. More than $1 million has been granted by the Bailey Family Fund to assist area students since it began offering scholarships in 2005.
