Applications Due February 14th

Submitted by Kristen Mild, Primary Health Network Charitable Foundation

Each year, Primary Health Network Charitable Foundation (PHNCF) provides $30,000 worth of scholarships to students pursuing a career in a healthcare field. PHNCF is based in Sharon, PA and is the supporting nonprofit organization of the Primary Health Network (the largest Federally Qualified Health Center in Pennsylvania). PHNCF offers various programs and services to the community and Primary Health Network Patients. With a Primary Health Network site in Erie, Erie County residents are eligible for this scholarship opportunity.

The scholarship program is offered to individuals (traditional and non-traditional students) pursuing a degree in healthcare. Applicants can be attending a technical school, a 4-year school, or even obtaining a certificate- as long as it is for a healthcare-related career. All of the guidelines/qualifications for the scholarships are listed at www.phnfoundation.net. Click on “How we Help” and go to “Healthcare Scholarships”.  There is a simple application and essay that must be completed and submitted online by February 14th, 2020. 

The $30,000 is broken down into twelve scholarships varying from $2,000-$5,000 per award. Applicants can apply each year.
