Application Deadline Approaching For CTMC Scholarships
SAN MARCOS, TX – Students have less than a month to submit an application by the March 31 deadline for one of three $1,000 scholarships from Central Texas Medical Center (CTMC). Depending on applications and need, the hospital is prepared to give more.
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 honor the hard work of outstanding regional high school students,” said Jerilyn Miller, CTMC Scholarship Committee Coordinator. “We are proud to have the opportunity to reward deserving students and 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. CTMC has been awarding scholarships to area high school seniors since 1997 as part of the hospital’s efforts to extend its mission beyond caring for patients.
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.
