Scholarships for High School Graduates
Each year, the Auxiliary awards one or more scholarships to local graduating seniors. We encourage and welcome graduating seniors interested in a health care profession to apply by the application deadline.
Awards will be announced at the recipient’s high school awards night. Funds are dispersed directly to the student’s school after receiving confirmation that the student has enrolled with an appropriate course schedule.
Scholarship for Non-Traditional Students
The Auxiliary awards one or more scholarships to non-traditional students completing post-high school education after a period of time working or gaining education in another subject area.
Preference will be given to Mid Coast Hospital employees. Students who previously applied for the scholarship for high school seniors will not be considered. Funds are dispersed directly to the student's school after receiving confirmation that the student has enrolled with an appropriate course schedule.
