Scholarship aims to help those perusing healthcare professions


Pine Bluffs residents pursuing professions in healthcare are encouraged to apply for assistance from the Kimball Hospital Foundation’s Healthcare Career Scholarship Program.

The Healthcare Career Scholarship is designed for students pursing careers in the healthcare industry who reside within a 40 mile radius of Kimball. To qualify, the student must enroll full-time in undergraduate studies at an accredited college or university. Examples include, but are not limited to nursing, radiological technology, laboratory technology, physical therapy, and health information management. Scholarships may be up to $2,000 for the first year, with stair-stepped amounts available each year for up to four years. Successful applicants must agree to work one year as a full-time employee of Kimball Health Services or another hospital in the Rural Nebraska Health Network (Alliance, Bridgeport, Chadron, Gordon, Oshkosh, Scottsbluff, Sidney) for each year of scholarship support.

“The Foundation Board members believe our town’s strength is dependent on the quality healthcare that Kimball Health Services provides,” said Kerry Ferguson, director of the Foundation. “Quality healthcare is the cornerstone of a viable community.”

Funding for the scholarship program is made possible through fundraising efforts by the Foundation, memorial gifts and proceeds from various Foundation investments.

Applications are due at the Foundation office by April 15. Those interested can contact their high school guidance counselor or call the Foundation office at (308) 235-1967.
