The fund, initiated through a $3.3 million bequest left by Bernard Bailey to MidMichigan, was established to further the goals of students pursuing clinical health care careers from an accredited college or university. Under the stewardship of the MidMichigan 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 any of the following mid-Michigan counties: Alcona, Alpena, Bay, Clare, Gladwin, Gratiot, Isabella, Midland, Montcalm, Ogemaw, Presque Isle, Roscommon and Saginaw.

More than $207,000 was awarded to 160 students pursuing health care careers for the 2020-2021 school year. More than $2 million in total has been granted by the Bailey Family Fund to assist area students since it began offering health care scholarships in 2005.
