SAN MARCOS, TEXAS
– Central Texas Medical Center (CTMC) will once again honor the hard work of outstanding local and regional high school students with ten $1,000 scholarships. The deadline to apply is Thursday, March 20.
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 2013, CTMC awarded eleven $1,000 scholarships, making it the most scholarship money the hospital has donated to date. This year, the hospital plans to award 10 $1,000 scholarships.
