The West Virginia Health Care Foundation awards scholarships each year to employees of West Virginia Health Care Association facilities. The scholarships allow employees to attain their educational and professional goals. Please contact the Association if you are interested in making a donation or sponsoring an annual named scholarship.
Scholarship applications are due during the first quarter each year. The Foundation board reviews applications and makes recommendations for awards.
