The Artesia Special Hospital District (ASHD) Healthcare Occupations Scholarship Fund was established for students who reside in Artesia and the surrounding communities of New Mexico. Through the generosity of this fund, the scholarship provides tuition assistance to students who work in the healthcare field.
To be eligible for an ASHD Healthcare Occupations Scholarship, applicants must be currently employed by the Artesia General Hospital for a minimum of 20 hours per week. Applicants must have attended at least one semester of college with a minimum overall GPA of 3.0. Applicants must be pursuing careers in the healthcare field (administration or operations). The scholarship awards will be determined by financial need and given for education at accredited institutes of higher learning only.
Scholarship awards are to be used for on-campus room and board, cost of tuition and books, or supplies and equipment required for course instruction (not to exceed the total cost of attendance).
The 2018 application will open on January 1, 2018.
