CTMC To Honor Local Students With Scholarships
SAN MARCOS, TX – Central Texas Medical Center (CTMC) will once again honor the hard work of outstanding regional high school students with three $1,000 scholarships. Depending on applications and need, the hospital is also prepared to give more. As evidence of its efforts to extend its mission beyond caring for patients, CTMC has been awarding scholarships to area high school seniors since 1997.
The scholarships may be used for costs of attending a university, college, community college or vocational/trade school. Proof of enrollment and a tuition statement must be submitted in order to receive the scholarship. The scholarship awards are based on community involvement, work or organization experience, financial need and academic achievement.
“CTMC is pleased to recognize and award students who have worked hard for their scholastic achievements,” said Clay DeStefano, CTMC Administrative Director of PR and Marketing. “We look forward to rewarding deserving students again this year with funds that will help them in their college career.”
In 2010, CTMC awarded a total of three $1,000 scholarships and also provided two laptops to additional applicants who didn’t quite meet the criteria for the $1,000 but demonstrated a true need that the hospital wanted to meet.
Application forms are available at www.ctmc.org, by clicking on “CTMC High School Scholarship Application” page, under “Education and Events”. Interested students must send or deliver their completed forms to CTMC, located at 1301 Wonder World Drive in San Marcos. Applications must be delivered or postmarked on or before Thursday, March 31, 2011.
