Annual Scholarship Opportunities

  Scholarship Programs Available Through the Foundation for Community Care

The Foundation for Community Care Board of Directors offers the annual Healthcare Scholarship program. Richland County and surrounding area residents pursuing an education in a healthcare field who intend to live and work in the area are encouraged to apply for funding. “We want to encourage local individuals to pursue careers in healthcare and stay here or return here to work after they graduate,” Foundation Board Member & Scholarship Committee Chair, Kristan Haugen said. Applicants must have completed one year at a post-secondary university or college.


A second local scholarship opportunity is now available as well. The Jessica Ann Vannatta Memorial Scholarship was created by her father, Greg Vannatta. The scholarship is awarded to a resident in Richland County and the surrounding area who is pursuing a degree in education at a college or university. Both high school and college students are eligible to apply.

The Scholarship application process is currently closed. Mark your calendar for March 1st, 2019, when the process will re-open.  

Applications and supporting documents must be received by the Foundation office by April 30 to be considered.
