Hospital Offers Scholarships
to Those Planning Healthcare Careers
& Queen Anne's Hospital is offering scholarships to students planning
careers in the health care field.
The Hospital's Auxiliary created the Katherine "Kitty" Anthony
Clements Scholarship to assist individuals in obtaining needed education
or training required to become a health care provider in a field necessary
to meet the workforce needs of the hospital.
Applicants should be planning to pursue careers in areas such as nursing,
surgical technology, radiology or medical laboratory work. The program
will fund a student's education in exchange for working a pre-determined
length of service at the hospital while maintaining a minimum grade
point average of 2.5. A recipient may receive up to $7,000 over three
years; funds may be used to pay for tuition, fees and books. Students
applying for the program should be Delmarva residents.
"The Clements scholarship funds are a positive tool used to help
the hospital meet its need for trained and qualified workers,"
notes Beverly Churchill, vice president, human resources at the hospital.
"And they can be a major asset for community members seeking
a career in health care. We are very grateful to the Auxiliary for
this generous gift."
Detailed information and applications are available from the human
resources department of Kent & Queen Anne's Hospital located at
100 Brown Street, Chestertown, or by calling Leslie Stack at (410)
