Applications for the Graham Health System Scholarship for the Advancement of Rural Healthcare at Spoon River College are now available for students intending to enter healthcare programs or several other programs at SRC.  Both current and prospective students are encouraged to apply.

In exchange for a scholarship which may cover the entire cost of tuition, fees, books, materials, and potentially other expenses, the recipient will agree to work for Graham Health System for a period of time after graduation and licensure.

“We remain extraordinarily grateful to Graham Health System for their foresight and leadership,” said Colin Davis, Executive Director of the SRC Foundation.  “Healthcare professionals in particular are one of the economy’s greatest needs right now, but the up-front cost to education and licensure can be a large barrier.  As one of the largest employers in our area, Graham is leading the way and making a big commitment to both our students and the local economy.  This is an incredible opportunity for local students.”

Though the scholarship is available on a rolling basis, students who wish to be considered for the Spring 2022 semester should complete all requirements to apply by Oct. 31, 2021.  Students who apply after that date may be considered beginning in future semesters.

Eligible programs of study at SRC include, but are not necessarily limited to: Nursing, Health Information Management, Computer Information Systems, Culinary Management, Emergency Medical Technician, Pharmacy Technician, Industrial Maintenance, and all related degree/certificate programs.
