REGION - Johnson Memorial Medical Center (JMMC), the parent company of Johnson Memorial Hospital (JMH), is accepting scholarship applications for its Medical Staff Scholarship Program. Applications can be obtained by contacting Kate Sullivan Vaghini, development associate at 860-684-8162 or at Kate.SullivanVaghini@jmmc.com. The $1,000 scholarships provide financial support to students pursuing studies in health or human services related fields. The medical staff began awarding the scholarships in 2003 to local high school students. The program has since expanded to include employees of JMMC, their children, both teen and adult volunteers, as well as previous recipients, from the past three years, as they continue to pursue their degrees. High school students may apply if they will graduate in 2014 and reside in Ellington, Enfield, Somers, Stafford or Tolland. Those individuals that reside outside the designated geographic area, but are a JMMC volunteer or who have a parent who is employed by JMMC, may also apply. Students pursuing higher education in health or human services may apply if they are a JMMC employee, JMMC adult volunteer or were a recipient of this award in the previous three years. Scholarships will be awarded to a student in each category based on set criteria developed by the medical staff. The deadline for submitting applications is April 2.
