Students can apply for health care scholarships

December 16, 2013 

The Trios Foundation is accepting scholarship applications, and the deadline is Dec. 31.

Up to $6,000 will be awarded to as many as four Tri-City students who are pursuing or continuing health care-related education in the 2014-15 academic year, a Trios news release said.

The scholarship criteria include a demonstrated financial need, a clear focus on pursuing a career in health care, community involvement and at least a 3.0 grade-point average, the release said.

A selection committee will make the picks and provide notification before the formal announcement at the Trios Foundation's annual breakfast in February, the release said.

The application is available at www.trioshealth.org/foundation under the scholarship tab, at the Trios Foundation office at 809 S. Auburn St., Kennewick, and at Tri-City high schools and colleges. For more information, call 586-5776.
