Foundation Scholarship Program

photoThe Western Maryland Health System Foundation provides financial assistance to local residents who are pursuing healthcare professions and interested in taking advantage of the career opportunities available at WMHS.  According to Karen Johnson, Executive Director of the WMHS Foundation, "This scholarship program demonstrates the Foundation's commitment to ensuring quality health care services for our community."

Since the inception of the WMHS Foundation scholarship program in 2001, students have received over $1,000,000 in scholarship support.  Ultimately, the return on investment for WMHS is that these scholars will continue their professional careers locally, at WMHS.

Applicants are encouraged to complete and submit a separate application for all scholarships for which they are eligible. See full scholarship brochure for scholarship details from our 2017 season.
