We are so fortunate to be able to offer medical scholarships to local students.  This has such a huge return on our investment, as many of our recipients currently work or plan to come back and work at FMDH.  We have several different scholarships available.  Submit ONE application and the committee will pick the right scholarship for you.  

The Foundation Board has taken care to prudently invest these three trust funds to assure annual scholarships.  No scholarship will be awarded for less than $1,000.00.
