Sanford Health is accepting applications for five $5,000 scholarships awarded annually to veterans, Guard/Reserve members or active duty military service members who have demonstrated leadership and commitment in their community.
The Sanford Health Military and Veteran Scholarship honors those who have furthered their own progress and enriched the lives of others, especially in service, academics and community involvement.
Applicants must be a veteran, Guard/Reserve or active duty military service member and a full-time student pursing a bachelor’s, graduate or professional degree from an accredited U.S.-based institution of higher education. They must also have at least one full year of education remaining.
The scholarship is administered by the Sanford Health Department of Veterans and Military Services and was created in 2018 as part of the health system’s efforts to serve veterans and military personnel through patient care, employment opportunities and community outreach.
Sanford Health is currently offering numerous scholarships, including the Sanford Health Equity in Education Scholarship. That scholarship is available to first-generation Americans, first-generation college students and non-traditional students of at least 25 years of age.
