For the second year in a row, the COVID-19 pandemic restrictions mean ACMC will not have its annual ACMC Academy; but that is not stopping the hospital from helping students seeking a career in healthcare. High school seniors who plan to attend college or training for a career in healthcare can apply for a $2,500 scholarship.
“For more than a decade, ACMC Academy has given high school juniors and seniors an opportunity to learn first-hand what it takes to succeed in the healthcare field, but this year we are adjusting how we help our local students,” said ACMC Foundation Executive Director Tammy Netkowicz, CFRE.
Up to two scholarships will be offered to 2021 high school graduates of an Ashtabula County school or whose primary residence is in Ashtabula County. The scholarship is available to any public, private, or home school student who graduates with a minimum 3.5 GPA and who has exemplary attendance (three or fewer excused absences or tardies) for the two most recent semesters. Scholarships may be used toward tuition, books, related expenses, or required room and board.
Students may apply by filling out the application available at www.acmcfoundation.org (click on the scholarships link). The application must be returned by mail (postmarked April 30) or by email (received by 5 p.m. EDT, April 30) and must include other requested material such as an official school transcript, guidance counselor contact information, letter of recommendation, and a personal essay.
All applications will be reviewed by ACMC Academy selection committee members and final candidates will be invited to participate in personal interviews. Final candidates will be interviewed May 17-21 and scholarship recipients will be notified by May 28.
