Appalachian Regional Healthcare is standing behind its commitment to provide
financial assistance to standout college students with the ARH Scholars Award.
The ARH Scholars Award is a scholarship program designed to help fund the
cost of education for those interested in seeking a career in healthcare.
The award is open to all those living in any of our ARH communities. ARH will
pay $5,000 directly to the recipient’s school of choice to go toward tuition.
Moreover, ARH will provide mentors who will be directly engaged with each
student to ensure successful completion of their education.
This round’s eight recipients were selected from a very diverse, competitive
group of people who are all extremely passionate about their healthcare career
choice. All share a common ground: wanting to have a lifelong role in building
and maintaining healthy communities.
