Scholarship Program

The 2017 Scholarship Program is now closed. Information about the 2018 Scholarship Program for High School seniors will be posted here February 2018.

CHI Health recognizes the importance of providing scholarship resources to the next generation of health care workers. Scholarship applications were received from 120 Nebraska and Iowa seniors representing 65 public and private high schools. Eligibility criteria included a 3.0 GPA, as well as intent to pursue a post-secondary degree at an accredited institution in a health care field. After much deliberation by the Scholarship Review Task Force, we are pleased to announce the twelve 2017 CHI Health Scholarship award recipients.

The scholarship is a one-time (non-renewable) award in the amount of $1,500. Congratulations recipients!
