2019 Foundation Scholarship Program
The Western Maryland Health System Foundation provides financial assistance to local residents who are pursuing healthcare professions and interested in taking advantage of the career opportunities available at WMHS. According to Karen Johnson, Executive Director of the WMHS Foundation, “This scholarship program demonstrates the Foundation’s commitment to ensuring quality health care services for our community.”
Since the inception of the WMHS Foundation scholarship program in 2001, students have received over $1,000,000 in scholarship support. Ultimately, the return on investment for WMHS is that these scholars will continue their professional careers locally, at WMHS.
