WHF Opens Scholarship Applications

Winnebago, NE– The Winnebago Health Foundation (WHF) is pleased to announce the opening of applications for its scholarship program to support individuals pursuing careers in healthcare within the Winnebago Community and the Winnebago Comprehensive Healthcare System (WCHS). These scholarships align with WHF’s goal of increasing healthcare capacity and fostering community health initiatives in Winnebago.
The WHF scholarship program prioritizes individuals considering a career in healthcare or seeking to advance their careers in the healthcare sector. Eligible applicants include enrolled Winnebago Tribal Members demonstrating financial need beyond existing Tribal support, followed by other Native participants, existing WCHS staff, and individuals interested in WCHS employment and committed to WCHS employment for a time commensurate with the WHF investment.
“We are excited to support aspiring healthcare professionals and existing staff members within our community through our scholarship program,” said Amy Encinger, WHF Scholarship Committee Chair. “These scholarships not only invest in individual career development but also contribute to enhancing health care services and addressing community health needs in Winnebago.”
Criteria for scholarship consideration include academic achievement, financial need, commitment to Winnebago Community health goals, and community service involvement. Successful applicants will be expected to attend classes regularly, maintain good academic standing, and share the impact of their scholarships with WHF and the community. The amounts can vary based on funds availability and the strength of applications. Additionally, WCHS may match awards, up to a cumulative maximum of $10,000 annually. The application deadline for scholarships for the Spring 2023/2024 term is May 6th, 2024. All applicants will be notified of their status by June 3, 2024. The renewal process for scholarships is available on a case-by-case basis.
