Since 1979, the SBL Guild has awarded more than half a million dollars in scholarships to students in our service area who are pursuing their educations in medically related fields. Qualified areas of study include, but are not limited to nursing, medical technology, radiology, physical therapy, pharmacy, dietetics, medical coding, and speech pathology. The school to be attended must be accredited or recognized as an approved program by the appropriate agencies. Scholarships are awarded for an academic year and are based on a student’s scholastic achievement, financial need and the availability of funds. This year’s scholarship application deadline is April 1. Selection of recipients is made in early May.

For more information about scholarships or to submit an application , contact Colleen Stoner, director of Volunteer Services at Sarah Bush Lincoln Health System at 258-4180. For more information about the event, contact Kim Lockart at 238-4765.
