2024-25 Scholarship Program

In support of UPMC Western Maryland, the WMHS Auxiliary aims to assist with workforce retention and development efforts through scholarship funds. The Auxiliary’s scholarship program this year will be applied to those who have an intention to come and work at UPMC Western Maryland or area already employed by this health system.

New this year, students will sign an agreement letter demonstrating their intent, and existing employees can apply for tuition reimbursement. Six winners overall will be awarded $2,000, paid out in two installments, in August and January.

Applications will be due (or postmarked) by July 15, 2024 at 3 pm. Only completed and signed applications (with all necessary forms) will be reviewed by the committee. Please submit your application (via mail) to Patty Wright, Auxiliary liaison, c/o UPMC Western Maryland, 12500 Willowbrook Road, Cumberland, MD 21502 or by email to wrightpm@upmc.edu. Contact Patty with any questions at 240-964-8499.

For additional information about these scholarships, please contact Patty Wright, director of Volunteer Services and Auxiliary Liaison, 240-964-8499 or wrightpm@upmc.edu.

The WMHS Foundation (distinct from the Auxiliary) will be taking a one-year hiatus from its regular scholarship offerings as they reevaluate their program to best complement the variety of assistance and reimbursement options being offered by UPMC.
